    Very nice work, indeed. Well done!
    (The voices I hear in my head may not be real, but sometimes they come up with a good idea.)

    Have fun.

    That "buggy" turned out real nice Marty. When I was employed by N.P. back before the first merger, I went to work every night in one just like yours. I've bashed a couple myself starting with a MicroTrain 3 window version requiring a complete scratch job on the cupola's single side window. I noticed that you installed the ladder on the correct side, I didn't. I found an etched brass end rail and ladder for my next conversion and I'll get this one right for sure.
