Bill and all -

Thanks very much for the kind words regarding the train line.  However, the photo was of the one modeled by Ed Rethwisch.  He used a #70 bit and drilled the holes at a shallow angle.  I do occasionally include train lines on my models, but did not in this particular build.  Also, much of the upcoming description - the complex brake system - follows Ed's excellent modeling of the actual AB brake drawings.
