Building a flatcar; the next!

Well, I build the first one tonight. Build it as 24 foot example. First I build the basic frame and made a jig for easier building.

Basic piece:


Truck beams:


First beams:


Center beams:


center beam extended:


Rest extended:


Fist time out of the jig:


Beams for the irons:


Place is fixed:


 Second time out of the jig:


And so far ready. At this point it could also become a boxcar frame::


Our workspace in the living room tonight:


Arch Bar trucks installed. Not good for now, the right truck is a little too far to the center:


And with planks attached to it. Now it looks like a real flatcar!:


Later more!
