Simpler Than The Simplest Cobblers Knobernite Coulda Immagined! Over the weekend, I visited this caboose: Which you can see bears a blanked out window. All you need to do is cut a piece of styrene slightly larger than the window and glue it over from the outside. This works if you're a Hoosier, cuz they just welded a plate over the opening. If ya want to get fancy, you could use a thicker adhesive, like powerpoxy, and let a little ooz out to make the "weld", or better yet, apply the "weld" with a syringe after the fact. That's how I did the patch on the battered gondo: Monon's Troup Kitchen cars appear to have received the same treatment: If you want to see more, go to The Monon Historical Society and click on "Photographs around the Monon" then "Monon Troop Kitchen Cars". BTW: If you want to learn about that caboose, you won't find it under "Monon Cabooses" because it's an imposter. You can find it under "Miscellaneous Sites Along The Monon Railroad" (caboose (ex-EJ&E 179?) painted up as Monon 81579).
