Simply amazing. How much more framework is there to do?

Jason,
          Will the new passenger car get vacuum brakes? Or is that just for the #9?

Jason posted this several weeks ago ....

Eventually all cars will be vacuum brake equipped.  There are no specific plans for 67 right now.  We are focusing on the most frequently used cars first- and even that comes after system testing and refinement, which is what we are doing now.

Thanks
Jason

Are you going to make molds of original seats and use them or build new ones of your own design? Anyway great work.

There are photos of Harold's great work in making casting patterns for seat parts earlier in this thread here:

Looking through these photos, there's something very poetic about one car taking shape for the first time, while another is being disassembled for the first time, simultaneously under the same roof.
