Caboose projects
Author: bigkidpgh

I've had these brass caboose models on my to-do list for quite a while. I finally finished painting and decaling them last week.

1. N&W C31P - Overland Model
2. N&W C7 - Overland Model - I added the wagon wheel antenna 
3. P&LE Bay window - ALCO Model - I added the piping along the side per the prototype.

Weathering is always a tricky proposition for me - I've had varying degrees of success over the years - think I'll leave these as-is!

Very well done.  Your N&W cupola version looks better than a plastic version I had once upon a time.  I'm guessing the N&W bay window prototype came via an acquisition - NKP?

Yes - N&W class C6 and C7 bay window cabeese came via NKP acquisition. I believe that only the C6 class had wagon wheel antennas but I thought it was a nice detail and used some modelers license to add it to this class C7 model.

On the way home from work I saw what may have been a rider caboose at the end of a N-S train and it looked a lot like the silver roof N&W caboose above.  There was a depressed center flat car in front.  The caboose was black with a silver roof but I don't recall the markings; wasn't close enough and the train was really moving so I couldn't keep up with it.

Your cabooses look great, and so do the scenes they are sitting in.
