There was a message on one of the large scale modeling sites in which a fellow wanted to know the finish floor board widths for the J&S passenger cars.
If someone gets a chance, could you measure the floor in Coach 3?  Assuming it still has individual floor boards...
Thanks!

It does still have individual floor boards, and if I can remember, I will try to measure them for you. Or do you not need the measurements now?

Joe,
Yes, it would be great if you can measure the boards widths for me.
Thanks,
Dave

Dave,
The floor boards are 3and a 1/2 inches wide on the surface. My dad measured them for me. I am pretty sure that they are tongue and grove, but I am not possitively sure on that. Talk to you later.

Joe (and Mike),
Thanks for the measurement.  I'll pass it on to the fellow that had posted on the 7/8n2 discussion forum.

Dave,
Joe forgot to mention they run across the car. They might have known that but I thought it was worth mentioning.
