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!
