Boxcar 67
Zack, Fred, John, & Dwight drilled the floorboards from under the car up thou the new floor planks. These holes are for the metal rods that hold the roof to the rest of the boxcar.

The frame was then jacked up a little and a layer of the blocking was removed. The floor now being lower will make it easier  to install the cars posts between the floor and roof frame stored overhead.

12 side posts were milled on the ends

4 corner posts and 4 door posts had more work done to them.
