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
Brake reservoir
ABD valve
Brake cylinder
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.
