Thanks, Chuck. I also have this kit. I think I’ll cut the current door out of the side casting and remove all the door hardware. A Tichy replacement will be installed with companion half-door to reflect the as-built prototypes.


Then I’ll need new decal artwork….

Hi Eric,


In the Ted Culotta article in RMC that was referred to in Ben Hom’s response to me states that all of the car doors received steel reinforcing plates at the bottom of the doors during the 1934 rebuilding project.
