    Here is another kitbash I did to obtain a transfer caboose for my work train I have been working on for a while. The cab was one of those Old Timers Bachmann bobbers with little more than some cutting on it and making a wood floor for another boxcar floor in scrap box. The tank is a weight from the box car and I added a car weight in the cab. I have used everthing from the scrap box including making the rails from brass wire. I think it will look pretty good when I get the correct couplers on the thing. What you all think? :oops:
    (Got 5 pictures to post of it) :rolleyes: :wave:

    That's a neat caboose Jim. Love the details.
    What coupler changes do you think you need to make?

    I kitbashed one f those 'bobbers' too, to make sort of a homebuilt caboose for my coal trains, but yours turned out much better than mine!
