These 2 are the first of several left over from a large box lot of cars and rubbish (emphasis on rubbish, ) that I had bought a few years ago. I pulled all of the decent cars that took only a few hours of effort to move them to either keep or depart. The rest were salvaged for parts, trucks, etc and more than a few made some great kindling last winter,

But, I kept a few on the shelf thinking that there might be something there other than just kindling.

These 2 were basically wooden boxes with a boxcar roof section all nailed together when I started.

You could say itís a transfer caboose thatís been transferred from the to-do box to the in-progress workbench.

Just a bit, Mike.

I've built 2-3 transfer cabooses over the years and at least 1 bay window caboose. I expect this one to be fun...... Say no more!

On to the next and last from the tray full of partially built cabooses.....

...a bay window transfer caboose that looks to be some old Walthers parts...some wood...and much to do.

Youíve built a very handsome hack, Martin.
slimrails Posted - 08/06/2019 : 11:17:04 AM
Another beauty, Martin.

Nicely done, Martin.

An interior at this scale would be impressive.

Bit of a fast forward...







Going to leave the roof removable to make an interior possible in the future.
mwbpequod Posted - 07/28/2019 : 11:37:07 AM
Roofwalk supports in place and canvas roofing applied. Painting next

Another winner in the making.

Perhaps you could enlighten me on the purpose of the small window. Access to a lantern?


No good answer on that detail - was there when I got it and I just cleaned it up a bit. I'm going with it being the light into the throne reading room....

Looking at the inside of the body shell, it appears that the original kit provided an option to put this window on either side or both.
