Since Coach 8 is not a  partitioned, combination baggage/coach, I'd hang the door as planned with no  protection and leave the lone window alone, viewable when the door is closed.
The door will only move for entries and exits. Just simply see that nobodies' body parts or belongings are in the way.  ;)

Coach 8 outside with the door opening in primer. The first coat of green paint went on today but I forgot to take a picture before we put the coach back in the shop.

Looks sharp!  Really, really nice work.

I'm guessing coach #8 is taking a spin on the turntable before the start of trains Saturday.
What–me worry?

In the 'for what it's worth' department, I like Paul's idea.

Any thought of weatherstripping for water infiltration?

Here are the finished coach 8 doors ready for loading for the trip North.  I have the tempered glass which I will carry in the car so it won't risk being broken in the trailer.  The transport leaves Wednesday morning.

Randy,

Any progress on mounting the door on coach 8?

FYI the wood was fully dried and aged before cutting and assembling.

Be careful nailing the strips over the glass as the hard wood grain can make the nail walk into the glass.

Post pictures when mounted.

At the Board Meeting Friday night, Randy said he had the Varnish done and was going to flip it to paint the outside.

I've *always* made a habit of pre drilling holes in hardwoods whether it be for screws or nails.  Makes the job so much easier.
