Ann Arbor, too!
Malcom: What version are you doing. Is that double rivets under the windows?
Enjoying my Dynamometer Car
The N&W photo I am going by has a single row of rivets under the window.
beautiful, as usual...
it is always great to see styrene construction in a post. Beautiful work.
I've been off line for awhile so I just saw your post. I have several versions of this caboose by Overland, if you would like to borrow them to compare things I will gladly ship them to you.
Is that two northeastern style cabooses with wide-vision cupolas being installed for GM&O cabs? I've got one with a old Atlas cupola installed and painted IC. I'd love to do one for GM&O.
The Wabash handrails are very distinctive and I wanted to replicate them with wire but I realized this feature needed to be modeled accurately so in came the brass flatbar. It is time consuming but I like it.
Yes, those are GM&O Roodhouse cabooses.
Nice wok. Always admired your craftsmanship and attention to detail.
So much details! fine art!
jpv in France
Awesome detail. How do you make the rivet detail?
Are you making those to sell? I would buy a Ann Arbor and a dt&i if so.
Malcolm another fantastic build!!!!!!!!!!!! To anyone who doesn't own one of his masterpieces you need to have Malcolm build you one. I am fortunate to own the Akron Canton & Youngstown bay window caboose that he built several years ago. It is on display in my living room with a super detailed AC&Y 0-8-0. Thanks again for building it.
Sorry I'm late to the party, but I absolutely fell in love with your streamlined cabs. Do you need construction schematics and/or painting & lettering diagrams? I have them available.
BTW how much would one of these beauties set me back?
I do like cabooses...too bad there are so many l would like to have..
Now you can model them at high water... this is in St. Charles, MO. (Jeff Kruse photo, from FB "Abandoned Rails" group)
"When it came time to fill the track pan, railroad employee Bolivar T. Shagnasty turned on the water, then walked to a bar nearby to partake in a liquid lunch. Reportedly, Mr. Shagnasty enjoyed his lunch so much that he consumed a second helping, followed by a third and in all likelihood a fourth, which caused him to repair to a nearby alleyway in order to regain his composure."
