I recently purchased a Southern Railway, the British Southern, A1 Terrier 0-6-0 tank engine and I am looking to build some proper looking stock to run with it. The old Lionel bobber cabooses bases look like good candidates, I just need the length and width of the base for scale reasons. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Are you talking about the low dollar starter set type bobber caboose?  I can't remember lionel doing any higher end bobbers.

Yeah the starter set version, it has the best looking frame and price for the project I’m working on.

Max width is 2-1/4" at the steps.

General view of the underside. The construction is basically snap together. 

Hope this is the info you wanted.
