Good idea Marcel. Also, when working with trim pieces that always want a snug fit, or pieces that will frequently be removed, I drill the piece I want to attach with a pilot hole at the shank diameter and the piece it is being attached to with a either one pilot hole under the thread width or two graduated pilot holes. This way, the trim board is always drawn up against the main piece.

Folks,
         I assume that the new doors were delivered sometime in the last month. I hope to see some pictures of how the doors were hung inside the now combine. Since there are two of them; it will make the car into a very useful piece of passenger equipment. Perhaps on a Thursday morning?

As mentioned earlier, only one door was planned and will be hung for now. 8 is actually still a coach with one, side handicap door, since it does not have a partitioned baggage space.

Did any of the original WW&F coaches have toilet facilities, or are Maine folks tougher than the rest of us?

Yes. Coach 3 has one, although without fixtures.

Randy Beach and his team have really done a great job to get our Coach 8 modified per the original WW&F drawings for a baggage door, which will greatly assist our mobility impaired Museum members and our visiting guest.

The door project, like all our other projects such as the Dairying Car, Number 9, the current box car project and Number 11, the recreation of our buildings, and the list is endless, are all representative of the skill, craftsmanship and diligence of our volunteers.  A wonderful group of folks who are all lovers of narrow gauge railroading and are recreating history to share with current and future generations.

It is one of life's privileges to be a participant with such a wonderful group of people, and over time and in many small parts, add to the overall achievements of our WW&F Museum.

Absolutely, Bill. I always look forward to seeing and enjoying progress on the many fascinating projects, as, I'm sure, lots of the other WW&F fans across the world do.
