Well. it is done except for a few minor touches. Here are the steps in progress.
The end beams are redwood and the railings are soldered up from brass tube and rod. I used the grab bars and brake wheel from the donor car. The long grab bars are made from .06 brass rod.
The end beams ready to install.
After painting I installed the steps and end beams.
A little more paint here and there, some tape and paint on the roof and lettering and here she is ready to join the train.
With the Pullman car.
