To heck with just one walkway - did that hatch have any sort of keeper? It looks like it has to be completely removed to fill. I'll bet they wasted many hours chasing lids that were bumped by the fill hose or otherwise slid off the rounded-top dome and over the side.

Judging from the trucks this was very early 20th century.

I wouldn't be surprised if one slot was not a slot , but a hole . with a bolt . Maybe always loose , maybe not and serves as a pivot point once all others are loosened and laid aside . I don't see any fill pipes or hoses .

Spent most of my week drywalling this:

It’s the wall behind the downstairs half bath that had a jagged piece cut out for a plumbing leak from the upstairs shower drain

And it’s done

The tankers on the background are very early 20th century.  They look like the UTLX cars that ended up on the D&RGW narrow gauge.  At least two of them, UTLX 58008 and UTLX 58041, were still in service in 1969.

Dunno... they all look like slots to me. But it also looks like something is keeping it from sliding off--maybe a pin on the underside that hooks on the inside of the opening?...

I've made some nice progress on my Goodnight mattress low relief building.  I've got to figure out if I am going to try and smooth the joins between sections or hope that the paint covers.  The joins are pretty darn flat, but I can them.  The black is from using a sharpie on the edges to show if I had it sanded square or not.  I am also considering if I should make the freight doors visible in the open door, or just leave it as an opening.

You can " hide " the seams by running a narrow piece of strip styrene at the joint to simulate a downspout.  Or a slightly wider strip to simulate a concrete "pillar" I'll call it, somewhat similar to the look of Walthers George Roberts printing

Nice job so far, however there are no paints that will mask those seams unless applied so heavily, thus filling mortar seams.
If you feel it will bother you, it's best to address it as best as you can right now.
