    Who makes these distinctive cabooses in HO? I vaguely remember seeing MDC roundhouse make a kit many years ago...but am not sure. I've only found brass and wood models so far, any help from those who go all the way for Santa fe?

    Here's a real photo of the "Widow Maker"

    Intresting models, if nothing else, I certianly would NOT want to crew on these! :eek:

    Miles,

    MDC was the manufacturer that had these a while back. Funny little creatures!
