Very nice job, from a shell to a fine car.
Congratulations.

Here is the final look of the McKeen 55ft Pasenger Car,
Now will attempt to build a trailer car. I haven't found any pics, only mechanical drawings. Two are described: 31 FOOT PASSENGER TRAILER which is much the same over all look as the motorized ones, has 4 wheel trucks. BAGGAGE, MAIL AND EXPRESS 31 FOOT STEEL TRAILER, this is depicted with either 4 or 2 wheel trucks. I don't know if any were ever made. If anyone finds pics please post them, thank you. LiG

Am sure there is someone out there with pics. Bound to be a fan of a now defunct railroad that has them or try the Kalmbach Publishing group they would have a archive of thousands of historical pics.
