DL&W Pete: The best place to do a search is on the National Association of S Gaugers site at www.nasg.org

Checking their site, I found a brass Reading center capola caboose that was imported in 1984.  There are surely more Northeastern* and bobber cabooses that have been released in S scale.  Prossibly older wood kits as an example.  Hope this helps.

* Oh yes, I almost forgot, how silly of me.  The American Flyer plastic caboose that's been around forever (now "Lionel-Flyer") is perhaps the most well known model that appears to be based on the standard "Northeastern" version.

Have a blessed and enjoyable S Gauge Sunday!

Thanks Joe...

Your more than welcome Pete.

I'm sure other S gauge guys know much more than I do and perhaps will add their two cents to my reply?  I learned a lot about S gauge (and all other scales too) having worked part time for the late Chester The Most Holley* in his train shop in the Palma Ceia area of Tampa, Florida back when I attended high school and lateras an adult in his expanded shop during my annual vacations taken from Germany after I had relocated here in late 1976.

*Chester was also a regular OGR advertiser for many years as well.

Pete,

The only person that I know who has bobbers in S scale is Bill Lane.  One was built by legendary S scaler Frank Titman and the other one he built himself.  He may have the plans for the construction if you are interested in doing scratchbuilding.

Here is Bill's page showing his bobbers....http://lanestrains.com/Caboose.htm

Also, if you do FB, I suggest you join 'S Scale Model Railroading.'  S enthusiasts exists in many sub-groups and the various online S related forums have different foci.  This OGR forum is largely American Flyer (post war and modern) and hi-rail focused.  Personally, my interests in S are broad, so I am a member of about 7 online S groups ranging in focus from pre and post war American Flyer purist all the way to prototypical S scale modeling.  So a question like this posed on FB's S Scale Model Railroading group will likely get you many more responses.

Chuck
