back from the powder coater

I gave the powder coater the coal car upside down, and he hung and painted it upside down.  Once I got it upright at home I realized the coating is thin on the inside of the frames at the ends where it was hard to see to coat.  I had seen one little spot while there.  We talked about next time I can provide some sticks to go into the coupler pockets that will allow the car to hang upright.

Next is to measure and order some graphics to go on the car.

While we wait for the graphics I am assembling loco number 2.  

 I am worried about lack of travel for the axles.  We shall see how it tracks at White Creek in a few weeks.
