I have not written anything for a while about WP668, our 1916 backyard caboose, but we continue to work on it. John got the stair railings finished and coated. He also added lights to the stair risers to make night access safer. It was easier to add the lights while the railings were removed. The stair rail coating is gray to distinguish it from the yellow grab bars of the original caboose. It is smooth to the touch and will protect against rust.
We worked with a master welder in October 2008 to construct the railing from pipe.
