      Something about that photo reminds me of a long-ago wood kit, maybe Juneco (they specialized in Canadian equipment). If the builder started with a kit, it was cut down to 1/2 of its original length and lost whatever truss rods and queen posts it might have had originally.

        Kit by Rio Grande Models, Pickering Lumber Co. Caboose #2. $35.00

        Or, use West Side caboose measurements and place the windows and cupola where you want them.

            As Lou said, you could start with the Westside Lumber cabooses. They had several with different window arrangements and different placements of the cupola.

            Here is the version that I scratch built from kit plans that I had. It is HOn3.



            The build begins on page 17 of this thread.

            http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...7&whichpage=17

            Page 17 has the dimensions of the under body. The build continues on Page 23 and finished up on page 27. You will find the dimensions of the cabin on page 23. You would want two side windows instead of the one that I used.
