B&SR tank car:

Has the Grants group tried Exxon Mobil for a grant?  I started this several years ago but I did not follow up.

More superb wood work.
Add finish paint, metal roofing, trucks, doors, hardware and voila...67's ready to roll.  :)

 Great news on Face Book about the progress on the roof trim, paint, wheel sets, and door trim. Zach is a great and steady leader of the car 67 crew.                                           Fred Kuhns

67 was placed on it's trucks and turned so Zack could work on the roof line over the door. This is the side he had to work on before the car was turned.

How'd you squeeze the spring planks together to get the swing hangers on?

And ... the photos are already outdated because the second door track box has been built and the trim is prime painted.
