    A Couple of In-Progress shots of my Lehigh Valley X58 Boxcar kit.

    Here I have added all the brake lever guides, brake levers and rods, the small lever with out any rods, is for the hand brake connections which will be added later. The trucks are added temporarily now, to protect the brake gear while other detail work is going on.

    Bent and installed the end ladders on both ends of the car, also installed the coupler pockets and couplers at this time.

    Thanks for looking!

    Holey Moley, Rick - are these actually gonna work? I'm expecting to see tiny brake shoes as part of a fully operational brake system! Just kidding - but wow - what a project!
