In the way

I had stopped working on the coal car for a while as the next step is to weld on the parts I cut earlier.  I am waiting until I had a larger grouping of activity to make save setup costs.  While looking around the shop for work space I realized that car was taking a lot of real estate.  Rather than bundle the parts and car separately I pined the L braces in place.  I am using 1/16th dia rivets to pin the parts.  Drilled the movable parts with the drill press, the car with the hand drill.  I did break one drill bit by hand... bad ergonomics.
