My friend helped me move some stuff and she said it felt like getting on and off the train. Her mom was one of those Hardy Girls that were nurses on the trains. Something like that. Harvey Girls. I was going to take mine out as well, and am now rethinking.

I left the original pole and panel there, and have no regrets. I just added some wood elements to make it look nice, and I also put a couple electrical switches on there for my outdoor lights. You can find a pic about 3/4 of the way down this page: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4959&start=150.

thanks for the pictures showing the stair handrail Dan. mine was gone when i bought it. Yours looks like i is at a pretty steep angle. my original panel looked like a seat back without a seat so it had to go. mine also didn't have a pole going to the ceiling

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

finished my hand rail today. i made use of the seat rail to do so. i also worked on removing a bunch of trees so i can make my driveway bigger. that way i will be able to pull the bus out with confidence.

Pretty dang fancy there.. I'm still marveling over your window sills and curtain rods.

That is a nice look... The rails, the steps, the windows behind.. *sighs*

Thanks Shadoll,
I'm glad you like it. i agonized over that hand rail, and how i was going to attach the bottom of it for quite some time.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I love the use of the structural seat rail for the base of the hand rail. I'm looking to do something similar, and I think I'll try and tie mine in the same way.

Great build. Thanks.

thanks Hex, i even re used the bolts that held the seats into the rail. i have a bunch of them. I have been trying to re use the seat rail inside the bus to secure things as much as possible. i figure if its strong enough to mount seats, it should be strong enough to secure interior furnishings(counters, railings etc)
