I like all cabooses but I am really drawn to the small ones. This is one of 3 of the DM&IR I recently built. I found an old copy of Mainline Modeler with the drawings and decided I had to have one. It has been an interesting build. I have found several photos from several different sources and all of them show the cabooses in good repair and fairly clean so I very lightly weathered it. I read that the DM&IR shop forces had a long winter to work inside and keep the equipment in good repair.
love it! Bravo! I am the proud owner of 3 Brother Love cabeese. 1. Conrail ..Atlas model, patch paint and boarded up windows...weathered like it sat in Pennsylvania for 20 years. 2. EJ&E custom scratch built...awesome. 3. Union RR flat roof cabin....a gift from my wife with help from Kurt Kissner. A Christmas gift unfinished...painted with decals applied by me......love all 3!
That caboose is so very appealing...well done by the master of caboose building.
Very nice! I agree the short ones look nice. I'm 100 percent Southern railway but I love the short bobber cabooses.
Expertly done! DM&IR cabooses were always one of my favorites.
Thanks gentlemen. I finished the 2nd one as a 3R version. The 3rd one is underway but it was a masking nightmare!
Love them both!
Very nice work
Tom, would you mind posting a picture or two of the Conrail caboose
Malcolm, it’s great to see you posting your work again here on the Forum. I always look forward to seeing your latest caboose creations!
Forgive me for asking this if you’ve already mentioned it somewhere else, but are you taking on any additional work? I’m interested in possibly adding a 3rd “Brother Love” caboose to my collection.
Thanks to all for the kind comments. Joe, shoot me a PM. I finished one of the GN streamlined cabs today and the other one will be weathered next week and it will be finished.
I have 2 Tennessee Central and a Florida East Coast about done too.
Please don't leave us.
The Master Builder!
To say they are impressive is a massive understatement!
Love your work, Malcolm.
