Step Right Up!

I wasn't going to admit this, since I've already made my ONE mistake for the year, but I'll go ahead anyway.  I forgot to leave room for the steps on the caboose.  Fixing that required cutting notches into the decking - very delicate, worrisome work.  All is well, however, the notches are cut, and things seem to be on track for installing the steps.  All of the pieces are cut, just have to assemble and install them all.

I also finished adding the truss rods and brake details.  It's not 100% accurate, but close enough for a Division contest.
