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.

Getting it fitted out now...

mwbpequod Posted - 07/07/2019 : 10:14:40 AM
Next up out of the caboose tray of project boxes: needs finishing and all the details...looks like this might be an old Train Craft kit - pretty thick plywood scribed with Lobaugh trucks that as it turns out are mounted to a bit of brass inside the car body. Turns out that the entire roof in removable. Will make glazing windows far easier. May leave that roof removable - interior, maybe or not or next owner...

Thanks, guys!

This was a good one to grind through and now that it's done, on to the next one in the stack. There are at least 2 left in this storage tray and then it's on to the next tray, and something other than cabooses for a few months!

Although, I know in the other set of shelves that there are 3 brass caboose in need of attention...

I like the juxtaposition between the curved elements like the end rails and ladder tops with the straight, squared elements like the boxed-in sliding window frames and sides. The matching roof and cupola curves stand out well against the boxy nature of the body. Classic lines.

Terrific work, as usual!

Michael Hohn Posted - 06/30/2019 : 10:24:45 AM
Well done, Martin. This one has a lot of style. There’s something about its proportions that I really like.

mwbpequod Posted - 06/30/2019 : 10:12:49 AM
Fast forward to done, or at least as far as this one is going other than in its box to travel to Strasburg in August in search of a new home

On to the next in the queue.....

Looking good, Martin.


Those are interesting grab irons around the end windows.

I agree, so I left them in place. Beats patching holes,

Splashed some paint on and glazed the windows and doors.

mwbpequod Posted - 06/16/2019 : 11:33:30 AM
Got a bit done on the floor, Had some decent etched brass steps about that were looking to be put into use, and so they were here.

mwbpequod Posted - 06/02/2019 : 1:00:17 PM
Thanks, guys!

On the next one in the queue.

Nice body shell; loose cupola and hole in roof where it sits, and a floor...that seems a wee bit short in the body, but reasonably something to work with - no end sills/railings, no underbody, some details to address all about, but should be straightforward.

Michael Hohn Posted - 05/26/2019 : 10:19:49 PM
Excellent workmanship, Martin.
Orionvp17 Posted - 05/26/2019 : 4:26:25 PM
Nicely done, Martin! Nicely done!

in Michigan
George D Posted - 05/26/2019 : 4:17:15 PM
Well done, Martin.

Martin, It really came out great, nice job. Love that railing detail.
