It is so good to see your work. I am very impressed and I am sure I will learn something new from your wagons. I have built a couple of wagon from the G.N.R many years ago in fine scale.
I am intrigued the way you have set out the express van, I have never seen it done this way. My worry would be getting the 2 sides identical. I try to mark out one on top of the other, so 2 side and 2 ends. I find that that the sides and ends will be identical even if they are wrong.
