Too bad cabooses are no longer used on trains. They sure were an interesting part of the history.

Nice build!

Really a great job, Tony. I love cabooses, wish I would have had a place to put on when they were selling them real cheap… Make a great little cabin in the woods…

Neat GR8... if you didn’t plan to, may I suggest you edit/post the extra bictures in the body of this project and depending on timing, drop a referenced comment about the extra pictures as past contributors may not re-read the body and you don’t want those pictures lost in the comments. Just my 34c worth!

Alternatively, you could always combine all 3 into a new project… backed up with plenty of photos.
