These are 2 of my own creations. The first two photos are of the first piece of rolling stock for our fictitious RR, the Great Northeastern RR.

The next 3 photos show the caboose for our Bungling Brother's Circus train.

Since the above photos were taken, I have added roof access ladders to the GNR caboose and marker lanterns to both models.

Are these old K-Line/Marx cabooses you repainted? 😃

Andrew:

They are all-plastic cabooses by Kusan. Kusan made a play set in the 1950's/60's called the "Kusan Canonball" that happened to be O gauge. My brother and I each had one when we were very young and found out that we could run the freight cars as part of a train on our Lionel Christmas layout. I still use them on our O gauge layout at the end of long freight trains so that the caboose will not weigh down the end of the train. I picked up several more on Ebay. They are all plastic including the trucks and  non-operating couplers. The car body cannot be removed from the chassis  Therefore, I cannot light them or glaze the windows. The roof access ladders are add-ons that I acquired on Ebay. These were first attempts at painting and are not perfect. But they work well for me.

Pete,

I love your caboose collection. I'm a big NYC caboose fan myself.

Here is part of my NYC Caboose collection. Although some are not prototypical NYC designs, I'm very tolerant on my railroad.



Lionel & MTH Cabooses

Two of my favorite Lionel Bay Window Cabooses  and an MTH Extended Vision Caboose in Pacemaker colors.



KLine Cabooses

These are 3 Kline Cabooses. The Extended Vision caboose in the foreground is one of my favorite. Behind it is a Bay Window caboose.
