A few clarifications regarding the past couple of posts:

Like all cars from this era the deck sashes (also know as clearstory windows) in the GN #3261 were built to open. However due to the delicate nature of the frames and the stained glass we have elected to keep the deck sashes fixed. We have removed the deck sash pulls to eliminate the urge to pull on them and damage the frames.

As built, the deck sash screens were in place to provide ventilation in the car. The screens allowed air circulation and ventilation while preventing cinders from entering the car. Mid-Continent built and installed deck screens for the GN 3261 a number years ago to recreate the original appearance although they no longer provide any ventilation.

I hope this helps to clarify the questions about the desk sashes and screens.
