Clankin' couplers, Conductors! November's upon us, and the days are getting shorter and colder! It's time to fire up that stove in the caboose and keep your brakeman warm and happy!

And with that little introduction, we have this month's Gallery theme: Cabooses.

Your photos can be prototype or model and of any scene, but each photo must have a caboose somewhere in it.

As always, please keep your photo file sizes limited to 80kb or smaller @ 72 ppi.

OK.... do I see a warm glow coming from the cupola of that crummy over there?

Here's a start to the new month. A CN caboose gettin ready to head out of town. Perhaps at the end of the run it won't be lookin' so clean...

Hi Len
Does this caboose look familiar.
The Alaska Railroad bought 3 of CN's cabeese.
I know that this model is clean as a whistle but it has only been out of the box twice for a picture.
It is an Athabasca Scale models brass caboose that I had painted and decaled for me since it is most accurate for the Alaska Railroad.
It started life as a Pte. St. Charles Caboose kit.

Here is another photo of one of the Alaska Railroads former CN cabeese as it passes the station in Anchorage Alaska.
This photo is also posted in my Alaska Vacation thread.

CMSTP&P caboose sitting at the West end of Bensenville yard, probably about 1987.



The next four pictures are from two S-Scale trainsets I purchased. I was blown away by the detail! The models are by S-Helper Services. More info here. http://www.showcaseline.com/

Dan

Dan, I noticed that a forward slash / was missing from your upload, so I inserted it for you. Hopefully, the photo will display properly now.

Hi all
The Alaska Railroad still uses cabeese on all their freight trains as all the switches are hand thrown.
However every once in a while they retire a caboose and offer it for sale.
This one was purchased by a used car dealer in Anchorage Alaska and is waiting for the right customer to come and purchase it.

I know some of you have seen this photo before (sorry about the repetition), but it's the only caboose photo I have - a situation I plan to rectify very soon.

For those who haven't seen it before, this is an HOn3 tool caboose I scratchbuilt a few years ago. It's lettered for my Osage Valley Tie & Lumber Co.
