Thanks, Phil.  I managed to do a lot of little things on the car and the water tank yesterday.  The tank is still not glued on since I want to be able to rest the car on its deck today as I install the stirrup steps.

Yesterday I finished most of the work on the flat car that carries the water tank.  I installed and weathered the scratch built stirrup steps, made and installed the coupler cut levers, and added the couplers and trucks.  The only thing left of the car itself is the brake staff and brake wheel which I will add after the last of the work is done on the water tank.

Right now I am adding some water seepage on the water tank and working on the hose I want to add to the deck of the car next to the drain pipe.

Another day or two should see this project done.

Thank you, Brandon.  I'm looking forward to finishing this car so I can start my Challenge project - a caboose I've seen in a book.

Here is a shot of the other end of the car.



And here the car is on the rails.

Such a neat little car.

I think you are going to have a nice collection if you keep building cars at this rate.

Thank you, Adrian.  However, I better stop making cars soon and get working on the actual layout!
