Don’t see too many cabooses on the rails anymore.
I remember a 1960’s movie as a youngster, “The Chartreuse Caboose”

Thanks all for your comments, and yes I post often but it’s what helps keep me going, as I’ve been retired for ten years and have tried and done a lot a things. I’m at the point where this is just about all I can do to stay active and keep my mind engaged.
Most of the work I have ever done has been hurry up and get it done, self employed type work where to make a living you set a price and the faster you can get it done the more you make, so I guess this has filtered over to my model building, it’s a mind set that can’t be turned off after all these years.
I’m always trying to find a faster, better way to get it built.
I really don’t like getting bogged down in details but prefer the faster square builds that are simpler for me, that’s why the train cars are so much fun, simple and 2 to 3 day builds.
But please don’t stop commenting, just a quick wow or cool, looks interesting , or even I don’t get it, helps to know all my typing is getting through. LOL #4 over and out.
