    Nice pic! I really like all of the details on that cabin...er..caboose! :) I miss them in real life but they run on my 1960s to 70's layout too! Hmmmm, I'm sensing a "show us your cabooses and cabin cars" thread in the near future (?)

    It has been a caboose since I was a child, which has been a long loooong time so to me it is caboose. I think if it said PRR on the side it would be cabin. Not sure of other companies, but it would be interesting to hear about who called it what.

    Yeah.... I never thought of that ...If you got a ticket it would reflect badly on the UP and nobody would ship with them anymore
