I saw a photo of this one in Morning Sun’s new caboose portfolio book. This is one of those cabooses that is different from most and that makes it more interesting to me. Short lines have some really unique cabs. This was was numbered 2853. I built 2 and as of yet I have not been able to find out if there was more than one on the roster. This model still lacks ladders and side grabs that will be installed after the rivets are applied. I did not enjoy making the steps but I like the way they look .

Yes, these two GA cabs are 526 & 517. I have about 30 of those still in my possession. Thanks


I suppose this sounds silly but I love building my own turnouts. Mine are nowhere close to the quality I’ve seen here from others but they work good. Thank you.


The Caboose Track

These comments sent me to grab "Mixed Train Daily", and "The Railroad Caboose", by Knapke, as both books have a number of photos of "different" cabooses, side doors, combines, and drovers, many on the short lines of the South.  I would like one of each of those, certainly the coach caboose of the Waco, Beaumont, Trinity, and Sabine RR.  Every now and then l page through to drool over the beese, and through the MOPAC and Burlington caboose books.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!
