I've been reviewing the sides again and there is one part that I am unsure how to resolve.
Whilst side A, (my terminology that I have been using since I began on the project,) just requires some minor alterations to move the 3rd window on the balcony end along to match the paired windows elsewhere,
Side B is a bigger issue. As mentioned previously, both sides are replicas of each other on the model, whereas the prototype is very different, especially when it comes to this side B.(both images being sourced from the Alexander Railroad facebook page, here )
At the non-balconied end, where the last 5 windows are, there are 6 on the model and I am fairy certain that the last set of double windows, (where the Alexander text beings in the 2nd photo,) is much further along the prototype than they are on the model. With both the railroad archives and the Pullman society in the US unable to come up with drawings for this coach after it went through modifications to the state seen in the photos, the actual positioning of everything is guesswork at this stage.
I don't fancy cutting and filling sections all along the side though, my skills at this point are certainly not up to that at the moment. Any suggestions on a suitable bodge are welcome, although I am contemplating sourcing a 2nd coach eventually to have another go, when my skills have improved in a year or 2.
