Re: Covid 9 Builds

Nice variety of cars, Fenton. I’m glad to see somebody else is building passenger cars. I posted a question on the passenger car group this morning asking about hand brakes on CB&Q heavyweight baggage, RPO, and dining cars. I only have photos of one end of all the cars I’m building and no scale drawings, so I don’t know if hand brakes were on one or both ends, and if only one end, which end?  The hand brakes in photos I have are the old long curved handle ratchet, pawl, and chain type. Perhaps you or someone in this group has an answer.

Here is what I've built and am building since the shut down.  Something old, something new, something plastic, something resin and some things not complete, nothing blue but me since I am not able to escape...
