HO scale freight car ladders

I was reading a really neat post on Pierre Oliver’s Elgin Car Shops blog about freight car ladders in HO scale. In the post he includes a link to a terrific PDF article on how to scratchbuild ladders. The technique is simple enough to follow along with and the resulting ladder looks quite nice. A quick survey of my home hobby shop shows I have enough parts here to try it out myself. Here’s the link from Pierre’s website:

Even without a car to mount these on this is something that will be fun to build and can be accomplished even in a short while at the workbench.
