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.

Those bases are out of my stock of resin castings - almost too much work to use them; sanding the back flash off and then drilling them out for the wire......but probably better than just sticking the wire into the decking.

It all looks nice, Martin, the railings in particular. Itís interesting, the castings with steps and truck bolster combined.

Old Walthers castings - the actual steps are another set of castings that glued in place.

They do give this car plenty of weight!

Ends added, roof "adjusted" railings added, and a minimal underbody set out that may or not get expanded. Milled out the end castings to accept KaDee couplers, too.

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.
George D Posted - 08/06/2019 : 09:35:35 AM
Nicely done, Martin.

An interior at this scale would be impressive.


Thanks, Mike.

I've done a few caboose interiors, but I"m on deadline to get thins one finalized and packed up to go to the O Scale meet in Strasburg on the 10th.
