Details

By nice convenience I have purchased a 1.6" coal car of the same basic design as an O scale atlas coal car I already owned.  While the large one had some details there are a few missing that I think it would be easy to add.  When I am done the car will not be an exact to prototype car, but it will have a few more details than everyone else who owns one of these cars. 
Bottom doors
Door latches
Bottom bracing
Trainline
Brake reservoir
ABD valve
Brake cylinder
Paint
Decals
Tonight's task was cutting 4 plates to use as the doors.  These half inch thick by 3 inch tall sections are a fair representation of the hatches on the O scale car.
