I have been building new bench seats for the walls of 2516, just as I embarked on this project guessing the dimensions from the shadows on the walls the UPHS (Union Pacific Historical Society) in Cheyenne said they had found at least a dozen sets of drawings for the UP CA and CA-1 cabooses from 1909 onwards and gave me copies, one of the drawings showed benches for CA's !
Anyway the workshop is currently stuffed with the 13ft bench for the conductors desk side opposite the stove. The other side has a 10ft bench all of them have opening lids for tool, parts and coal storage.
