The last major components to be added to the trailer car were the handrails. The two end and one seat back handrails were made out of 1.25" schedule 40 steel pipe.After the handrails were test fit, they were painted and installed. A steel panel was added to each corner. This works both as a letter board and as a means to keep anyone sitting on the deck from sliding off the ends.
