Blair,

The LV used a fairly bright red caboose color. Interesting that different reds were used as base and final coats.

Ted,

The 1880's are a scratchbuilders paradise. And I keep stumbling over new information on my chosen prototype. So, although progress is slow I stick with it.

Thank you for your interest and kind words.

Mike

I've experienced a serious slow-down working on the caboose steps. First, the jig I used for bending the metal parts and for assembly:




Steps in various stages of construction:



And a couple sets glued in place:



It's also about time to complete the Southern Central car shop. The slate roofs are almost complete and doors are ready to be added:






I am figuring out where the car shops and engine house will set and have started putting down some track. Wiring next, then ballast and scenery. It would be nice to have one scene complete.

Mike

Mike, Good to see progress on the caboose steps even i slow. And the engine house and car shops look really good.
They'll make an interesting scene when the area is completed.

Mike, your little step jig worked out very well.
I'm certain that your engine house & car shop area will be a really fantastic when completed.
Stop reading this, and get back to work on it!

Mike,
Your shop buildings will be a showpiece on the layout! I'm anxious to see a finished caboose...they are a neat design!
Wonderful work!!
