"Here is the latest from the BLW shops! The boys in the shop have been some busy beavers, working on the ends of the car. There has been much head scratching trying to figure out how to build the end platform. What materials to use and how to do it? Well, I did not hold them back on whatever materials or methods they used. All is fair in love and war and since I really love this car, I gave them Carte Blanche....  No expense was spared to put all the brass on it in just the right places. When I told them that I wanted all the doors and gates to work, there was a couple of groans and "Do we have to?'s", but in the end, I got what I wanted. Hey, this car has to be fit for a President of the United States, an office that I have deep respect for. I am proud to say that so far, no China made materials have been used in the construction of this project!"   - -  Barry
