Inspired by Malcolm's Missouri Pacific short bay cabooses from last January, I finally got around to making my own. Instead of scratchbuilding the underbody, I started with an Atlas 2 rail wide-vision caboose. In addition to couplers, trucks and a detailed underbody, the Atlas caboose has the correct truck centers and included lighting circuits for the interior and the red flashing beacon on one end. The new cabin is styrene, but I reused the doors and roof end light housings from the WV body. I couldn't find any Atlas roofwalk material for the platforms such as from their cylindrical hoppers like Malcolm used, so I used Evergreen square tile styrene turned 45 degrees to give the appearance of diamond plate. The platforms should be painted white, so I may tackle that in the future. The end railings needed a few details added to make them close to the MP ones. Screens for the windows were sourced from N-scale chain link fencing. The Atlas chassis required a lot of Dremel work to remove tabs and posts that supported the original internal details. It's not perfect, but it looks good from a few feet away on the office layout with the GP15s, especially with its beacon flashing. Once I got going I couldn't wait to get it finished, so there are some things I would do differently with more patience. If I do another, I'll take my time and make it more prototypical, mainly shooting for see-through platforms like Malcolm's. I'll try to post a few more pics if anyone is interested.
