Steam Era Hanging Wood Boxcar Doors Update
Author: funnelfan

Completed the most complicated part of my hanging wood boxcar door design, the door lock parts. Just need to design the door stops and lower door guides now.

Figures, I get this far along and find that Grandt Line makes a good hanging door (part #5207) for $3.30 per pair. Surprised this didn't turn up in my initial searching when I was looking for exactly this kind of part.

Well going continue making my doors as it will be an exact match versus a close match to what I need. I also needed 5 lower door guides versus the 4 on the part above, and some of the hardware differs. So here are the lower door guides that I just finished designing.
