  Thanks for your excellent blog post on the work you did on this great car.  I have
the following questions/comments:

  1) Why use PBW wire instead of the more typical use of simple brass wire?  Do
      you find it easier to use (such as bends better)?
  2) Why no cut levers?  Or brake hoses (I understand that some guys answer -
      because a train without the hoses connected looks wrong - just want to 
      know your answer).
  3) When will you apply the weathering and will the blog be updated with that
       info when you do - if so please let us know.
                                                                                                   - Jim B.
