A small but I thought interesting detail I saw in one pic was security bars across all the windows, so I added them.

David, thank you. I THINK I've roughly figured out how to make it so the support frame is hidden and only the journal support shows as in the pics, I also have to make it strong so would like to use screws instead of adhesive. Also have to use only what I have on hand as Jersey now has mandated quarantine, I think I do. LiG.

I agree with Jerry, the bars make me want to ship something with you!

Jerry, John & Stan, thank you for the words of encouragement.
David, I cut the basic frame of the chassis yesterday and hope to make more progress on it today. LiG

Dave, here is the rolling chassis. The side frames are from a narrow gauge scratch built car that was never completed. I cut off the center nut casting, drilled and put a screw and nut to more secure it to the frame. The BB wheels were the only two in the spare box and the frame is cedar scraps. It needs much more detail like leaf springs and that huge joining beam. It appears to be very high off the track, but I made the frame so the bottom of the trailer is same height as the cars. All suggestions appreciated. LiG
EDIT: after looking at the pic, think I'll turn the screw around so the nut is on the outside to match.

Nick,
I think that it's important that it lines up with the motor car.
The real one looked awfully high off the ground.
Well done using what you have.
Cheers,
