There is a tentative arrangement to utilize the existing J&S trucks and build new, appropriate trucks for coach 9.  There's still some details to settle- so for now I'll post more details in the members only section.

See ya

The door post/trim on coach 3 sanded down to the original factory paint.

Very neat picture! The thin layer of Edaville yellow really stands out.

So was the original color really brown, or perhaps maroon "lake" ?

we held up color chips to see what we were looking at. of the chips we had the "Kilz" color LM 100 (b3) "Incence Stick" looks really close -- think UPS truck Brown. which is "Pullman Brown" according to Google.

I also spent some time sifting through Jackson and Sharp images and found some good shots of similar cars.  This one shows the striping really well. http://delaware.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p15323coll6/id/3733/rec/1

So Eric, do you want to paint your new model coach in "WW&F Brown" as a test of what it would look like on the prototype?...

[I would like more information regarding the Coach 9 cloning project] because I own an artisan woodworking/cabinetry shop.

Equipment-wise I seem to gravitate towards mid-century Rockwell and Delta, with a smattering of Acme, Poitras, Kuster Woodworks, Handy, Crouch, Sand-Rite Mfg., Wetzler, Beach Mfg., Boice Crane, Crescent, Newton, Dake-Johnson, Stanley, GE, Van Norman, and anything else I may have forgotten. I do only North American manufacturers unless I have no choice. I don't like plastic machines, only machines made of materials directly on, or alloyed from, elements on the periodic table.
  • I can handle stock up to 20" wide and 6+" thick through my largest jointers and surface planers
  • I can 2-pass finish sand up to 36" wide and 6" thick
  • I can chain or chisel mortise
  • My air-actuated Handy door clamping table is good up to 10' x 5'
  • I can re-saw with either my 20" or 36" band saws
Let me know some details what you need for Coach 9 when you get a chance. Maybe I can help to fab up some sub-assemblies when there is some slack time in the shop as an in-kind donation.
