Organizing the flat cars

It’s funny how jobs stack up. I needed to design the bolsters for the flat cars, which meant I needed to measure the truck bolsters, which meant that I had to find some trucks. These, along with most of my detail castings, live in one of the cabinets above the layout, and they’re a bit of a pain to get at. So, while I was up there ferreting out the trucks, I also dug out some packs of nut-bolt-washer, queen post, brake gear, and other sundry castings.

These all went into one of my three project boxes – the one vacated by the roundhouse. So, I will be able to make progress on this project, but also put it away in favor of the locomotive as that project gets rolling.
