    Thank you Keith!!!
    I was wrong about the decals. They are really stenciles.

    Hi Joe. In response to your question the letters and emblems will be painted on early next spring or maybe late this winter. All work has stopped on 1291 for the time being, after a long hard push to get her painted we shut the doors and just had to step back and move on to some other priorities. I still love the Frisco and still love cabooses, but I am just not in the mood to work on her right now, but I have it on my mind and am looking ahead and will be ready to get back on the project by February or March, and pushing hard to the finish line.

    1291 was rolled outside today after a 7 month hibernation. I am excited and ready to work on the project again for a while. Will be installing doors and windows, lettering the exterior, painting the interior, etc. I hope to get her to the finish line this year. Time will tell

    Paul, I'm glad I got to see 1291 when you were early in the project. The first time I saw your caboose you guys were installing the steps at one end but hadn't started on the other end.

    You guys have done exhalent work and later this year the fruits of your labor will come true.

    Good luck with the weather!!!

    The doors we built last year are now installed and working with all the original equipment door latches and brass key. We used parts from 1291 and 1249 to get a full set of hardware. Very happy with the fit and function.

    I've been looking at Paul's thread for 1291 from the beginning and have really enjoyed seeing the progress over the years. A lot of hard work has happened and to see it close to the end is amazing!!! Hope the weather is good for you to the finish.
