    Here is another of my UP cabooses. (You can see some of my UP bay window cabooses in the photography thread) This is a kit that I built from a Golden West CA-3 kit.

    To my knowledge this caboose version is not available from any of the usual manufacturers, so I had to do it the hard way.... The end result makes a neat caboose, but there is quite a lot of work to building one. I don't think that I will end up building all the kits that I bought.:rolleyes: Too much work for someone who is more into "shake the box" kits.:D

    N-joy

    Looks great!

    I'm with you, though... I prefer kits, although I really enjoy scratchbuilding. Between shaky hands and dwindling eyesight, even at my young age N-scale is just a little beyond my limit most of the time. At this rate, I'll be in O-scale before I'm 40!!! :):):)
