Looks great Jerry! 

I too would have liked to see etched or wire handrails, but I have to say they look a lot better now that it's all painted.

I have to agree.  :)

I appreciate the sentiment, but what does this have to do with a Schnabel Car build?

That's some first class work right there. Definitely something to be proud of. Would love to see more shots of it on the layout in action.

I left Elgin a phone message, lets see if they return my call. I'd be interested in one of those big ones. Looks like with the load you can purchase from them the entire things would be 25.750 long and have over $300 into it after trucks , couplers and the two resin kits.   My smallest Red is 19.5", which should work. Just have to keep an eye on my tunnels.

Unloaded it will track about the same as a 50’ boxcar. The load changes everything. It is a beast. I wish the bottom span bolsters were metal. It would help the handling so much.
