Some progress... 

After mulling for months about a correct rear truck for this thing, 
I decided to make a shortcut, and use an Athearn Train Master truck... 

It is an FM railcar, so it's not completely wrong.

Had an broken Train Master frame too,
which I glued to a brass floor.

Up front,
it got a Central Valley heavyweight passenger truck,
100% correct.

However, from some angles it looks awful...
Especially the cab area, with the patched up rivets, isn't great. 

Hope I can fix this somehow.

I think if I touch up the lousy paint job, and add etched grilles,
it might help.
