I was thinking the same thing about that work flat!

Gordon,
Thanks for the explanation and great 3-D view of the front end.  I was asking my question because the description provided with one of the photos stated the cross tie assembly installation was now complete.
Happy Holidays!

Great progress on No. 11!  Is there a photo that better shows the cross-tie assembly in its installed position?

Any photos of the "ghost" combine?

Hi Ted, I believe earlier in this thread there had been mention of Eric and Ron (and Stewart in years past) researching how to build replica ceiling fixtures.  I don't think A&W makes this style of ceiling fixture anymore, but, if we don't make them ourselves, there might have been another museum or railroad (Strasburg, maybe?) that did so.  Dave Crow

I can see journal boxes for the J&S passenger car trucks (maybe?), but what are all the other neat castings?

Carl, you would have to look at the bill of materials as specified by Jackson & Sharp to see whether they used square or hex head bolts.  Certainly the square head bolts would be easier to hammer forge.  Many streetcars used square headed bolts in the truck frames until well past 1900: Brownell, Brill, any of the MCBs, etc.

Great progress on the roof as well as the start on the shingles above the door openings.  Will there be shingles on the faces of the posts, or will they be left bare?  I ask, only because I see some tarpaper overhanging the front face of the west corner post.

Ron, if you get a chance, search RyPN for the thread about the panels that Railways To Yesterday made for their Chicago interurban car.  It also might be on their website.  I know the Baltimore Streetcar Museum has had replacement ceiling panels made for at least one streetcar.  Sometimes the 3-ply veneer is glued together within curved formwork so that the panels are pre-curved.

The house I grew up in had additional supports in the basement due to the previous owners having a baby grand piano just above...

We had 3 inches of wet snow here in central PA (west of Harrisburg).

When making the ceiling lighting fixtures for the new coach, is there thought of creating fixtures for coach 3 as well?
