Caboose update

Progress on many fronts.
I have finally finished stripping and sanding the ceiling.
The first bench is progressing as seen. The vertical painted boards are recycled from our remodel awhile back. They are 1X4 T&G redwood that had been wainscoting.
The plumbing for the air brakes is proceeding nicely with lines to both ends and ready to hook into the brake cylinder.

All the steps are done. Today they got a coat of special zinc primer. Since it's going to rain in a couple of days, we should find any spots we missed. Gray paint on sandblasted metal makes it hard to see missed spots.

  1. You've come a long way. This has been such a long process for you, but it's enjoyable to follow the journey.
