WOW.... 

Zack and Dwight really have made progress on the floor.  Also, judging from their attire it was very cold in bay 2-3.  You Mainers are really a tough bunch.

In the morning 9F. When I went home around 3:30PM temperature had reached 19F.  It was cold in the shop. When Zack and I went outside for lunch. We had sunshine. But oh, the wind made it colder outdoors than in the shop.

Is there anywhere a caboose style coal stove could be installed to help take the chill off?

A shop stove would heat better but there isn't enough space currently for a shop stove. The small caboose stoves are good for much smaller areas.

There are two patio heaters that get used from time to time in the shop to take the chill off.

The box car is starting to take shape.

This company claims to have narrow gauge trucks for sale.  I believe they're 24 inch pictured.  Chinese maybe?  Multipower International, Inc. stocks hundreds of thousands of parts and accessories for narrow gauge steam locomotives. It is impossible to list all the parts we have available. Since prices are subject to change, please contact us for inquiries regarding parts availability and pricing information:

The vertical tension rods were installed and tightened to level the top sills.  You can see the rods next to the studs.
