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.

Arthur has just turned on the caboose lights as darkness descends over Britannia Creek.



Another great topic. Here is a caboose (guards van) I just completed. I have tried putting a light into it. The pickups need improvement but it functions.

Postscript. The guardsman Arthur is complaining that he is being blinded by the new light in the caboose and it is only on when the train is stationary. When moving he says the blooping thing is off and on more often that his engagement to the widow Martha MacDougall from Warburton. Even the caboose walls look like they might catch fire and Arthur is getting sunburnt at night. If management don't fix it soon then he might take early retirement!

I don't know if models are excepted, but here is a bash of a largescale bobber, into a 4 axel boose I did a while back. This shows the stock B-mann boose in red, and my DS&RG boose.

Here are the six LV cabooses I painted. The Lehigh Valley had a variety of paint schemes and I wanted to have them represented on my layout. All of the cabooses are Proto 2000 northeastern cabooses.













And here is the 7th LV caboose I have. It is the factory painted version.

I know that I have shown this model before, but here we go again. I built this as part of a modeling challenge on another forum last spring. It started out as an Athearn Work Caboose kit lettered for the PRR. After stripping the decals and repainting, I added wire grabs and steps, applied NYS&W decals, added new running lights, installed a wooden deck (board by board), and replaced the plastic side boards with wooden ones. After some weathering, this was the result.

I went through a short stack of pictures and pulled out the following caboosi (cah-boose-sigh). OK, it may not be 'cabeese', but it is what I like to call them. I thought since my pinky is smarting, maybe some of you could identify the where-abouts of their locations. Then, at a later time, I'll do some editing. Anyway, your's truly is waving from the cupola in the first shot. So, tell me what you know!


This picture was taken at the end of the line in Parkdale, Oregon. The caboose belongs to the Mount Hood Railroad based in Hood River, Oregon.


The ATSF caboose below is located in downtown Burlington, Kansas.


The FRISCO caboose below is located on Highway 160 between Springfield and Lamar, Missouri. I am currently looking for the town.


The SEK (South East Kansas) caboose below is located in Pittsburg, Kansas.


The ILLINOIS CENTRAL caboose below is located in Sedalia, Illinois.
