Production was not impressive but some basic information.
You might run it at 1.25% speed.
And of course you could go down the "Rabbit Hole".(Watch all the other posts by him)

Not too many screws -make the plywood snug to the sides.
isn't there a bunch of plywood overhead in the Car Barn?
Doesn't have to look nice.

Sounds like a plan Mike Nix.

Do not let the Museum get  bigger than can be maintained - nothing worse than a bad experience.

Dave I forgot about those.
Page 372 to 374 Material List for Heavy Flat Car
Without reading- is the material for the Box Car undercarriage more correct for a standard Flat?

Should have known you had a plan. Just thought parallel would make cheap/inexpensive cover.
Non-period stuff out of sight is good too.

Paint it Camouflage? As Mike says "boxcar" or how about "Freight Shed"

Not going to put new container parallel to old so with only a roof there will be 3 covered storage areas?
2 will be secure but the other will be at least covered or could be 3 walled.
10 or 12 feet wide?

His FB page:

He might be able to build a Switch Lamp from scratch? Or would you do that John?

Just an idea.

Happy Thanksgiving All

I assume :-) that the tag will be soldered on so any alteration can be reversed.
Alleviating concerns.

I know time is in short supply - but please map exactly where the conduit is located.

I know from experience both tile lines and electrical do not always go where you might think.
A map will help 20, 30 or more years down the line.

And Locaters can be off 5 feet and more which creates real headaches.
