What is the plan for interior lighting?  Oil lamp sconces or battery powered reproductions?

Regarding the lighting, James posted this at the NGDF forum earlier:

Quote
The new coach  will be number 9.  We'll have all the Victorian accoutrements: brass luggage racks, ceiling hung  kero lanterns, gold leaf, etc.

Eric and Ron installing one of the truss planks. The truss plank bolts through the side sill with hook bolts. The plank has steel bar stock inset into the top of the plank to give the hook bolts a solid surface to pull on.

Very nice work, Eric and Ron!  And Harold, for the amazing amount of prep work on this kit!

With regard to Mike's photo of those loooong letterboards above, the two photos of those loooooong boards getting 'planed' (in a different thread) deserve to be part of this permanent "Construction" thread.

Here is the caption snippet:

Work completed  Wednesday 28 April 2021:

*  Coach #9 Letter boards planed, these boards are 40 feet long.
    (Eric, Fred, Brendan, Bryce, Dan, Randy, Leon, Jacob, Steve L, Jason)

The two photos are linked from the quoted thread, below:



Note that there are 10 people listed in that caption, although not all of them are necessarily visible in those photos.
