As Promised Here are some pictures of my assembly attempts on the LV X58 Boxcar.



Here is the underside of the car after installing the Keystone Cushioning Devices and various Cross-Member
Reinforcements and general reinforcements.



Installed the various brackets to hold the Air Tank, Brake Cylinder and ABD Valve (with all the holes drilled out for
various piping to be installed). Then installed the air lines connecting all the above mentioned equipment.

Thanks for looking!

A Couple of In-Progress shots of my Lehigh Valley X58 Boxcar kit.



Here I have added all the brake lever guides, brake levers and rods, the small lever with out any rods, is for the hand brake connections which will be added later. The trucks are added temporarily now, to protect the brake gear while other detail work is going on.



Bent and installed the end ladders on both ends of the car, also installed the coupler pockets and couplers at this time.

Thanks for looking!

Retaining Valve Airline installed running from the ABD Valve and running down the right side of the car to the brake end of the car.
