Laid out on the floor locations for doors. Cut the sides so the seams would be behind the largest door on each side.
Rough cut the blanks for the roof same as on the 55' cars. LiG

Jerry, Bill thank you very much. If I wasn't having so much fun wouldn't spend so much time at it. LiG

Nick,
I attach what I assume is a McKeen car and trailer, although the caption does not say so.
Anyway, it may help you.
Interesting that it is sandwiched between two power cars.
Cheers,
David Leech, Delta, Canada

David, That is the one I am building. Good pic of the roof and my first pic of the 4 wheel car.THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'm not sure of the wheel arrangement I was going to use, but this one is very odd and interesting LIG

Nick,
I'm sure that you already found this website and page, and it does have a couple more photos of your trailer car.
Love? that four wheel undercarriage.

David, I found many sites but very few with pics of the trailers, and did not come across those pics. I very much appreciate you posting the link so I could get up close pics of it, From your pic on the forum I thought it may be a book you had and was going to PM you for the title so I could research it. Yes I am becoming more and more attracted to that undercarriage, should be fun to try to re-produce it. The book I have only has the mechanical drawings of the car and the optional interiors but no detail of the trucks offered. THANK YOU AGAIN. LiG

Ran a straight edge down the sides and found some minor distortions from the heat. Hobby shop recommended Squadron Products Gray Putty, very easy to use, no mixing, hardened in about half hour and fairly easy sanding.
