We have been working toward getting enough parts to build 3 pair of passenger car trucks to use under a caboose and other cars to come.  This is the start of putting parts together to build them.  Most of our work for the rest of the year is in the shop. Here are views of the casting, machine shop work, truck assembly and swing links added to the truck.  We use dummy springs as the coil springs are strong enough to carry the load.  -Tom
