67 progress to date. I believe the car is almost ready for siding.

Wow, at last.  I had never known how much work needed to be done to put the sheathing on a freight car.  Cudos, to those who understood the making of a robust "infrastructure" of a simple boxcar. Who really knew??

Agreed, Bob. And I bet the coming floor slabs and extra side room  will make it easier to work in the shop.
I see this as a prelude to coming heavy loco and coach work.  Smiley

Siding started going on the car and the trucks are going back together.

How is the Eames vacuum brake system going to be incorporated into the car?  Or is it to be left as hand-brake only?

I think the plan is to have a pass thru train pipe on all the freight / flat cars.

Actually, plan is to equip freight cars w auto Eames eventually.  67 will use an original B&SR cylinder given to us by MNG.

See ya
