It is going to be a great looking little caboose - but man, what a narrow platform!

Back then we worked hard and watched our waist lines a lot more that today,

It's actually just a bit over 3'.

Thanks all!

Not quite finished with this one yet - got to prep it for some dry transfer lettering and then I'll call it done - believe I'll keep this one.

Might as well - took 3 of my cabooses to the O scale meet in Strasburg and nary a one got sold...
