here is a series of photos of the way I went about making multiple copies of the Roosevelt Cars. In these first photos I made a JIG for drilling the axle holes in 10 bases. First grab 3 pieces of scrap wood , glue them to a board. Determine the hole location. Secure the JIG to the drill press stand. 

Drill your first set of holes in all 10 pieces.

Next cut a small SPACER and drop into the SLOT.

The pacer is determined by where the next hole is. As you flip the piece over, it slides in and you cut the next 10 holes....QUICK and EASY. Don't over think it. The 20 holes are common to all the Roosevelt Cars. They share the same BASE. Refer to your plans for details as to wood sizes. 20170412_111911.jpg  20170412_111929.jpg  20170412_111937.jpg  20170412_111953.jpg  20170412_112032.jpg  20170412_112059.jpg  20170412_112111.jpg Hope this helps someone build a little faster!

Yup, +1! Quick & easy is great, but add "almost foolproof" consistent accuracy and you're a professional Jig & Tool designer my friend. Well done, thanks for sharing.
