Reply to "my first custom rail car"

   A third day playing with a caboose.  How nice.  I let the robot vacuum cleaner score me some husband points.  The test caboose,X1, got another interior coat of black followed by a heavy coat of white.  While the paint dried, and the vacuum worked, I received inspiration on yesterday's medicine bottle failure.   I found a large bottle and cut it to fit horizontally.  More air gap everywhere.  No more color bleed, check.  Amber interior light, check.  Heat tested, check.  At this point I have $1.10 invested.  I will make the financial leap now.  I will order the parts to install LED lights in the work caboose.  X1 looks pretty good on the rails.  Here are today's pictures and a video showing the efforts and failures.
