The model is based on an original standard
design wood caboose. These cabooses were built around 1909-1921
and lasted in service until the 1960's. Then some, like the one we
modeled, were converted into yard offices for train crews. The
caboose would provide a place for crews to meet, get orders, store
belongings, rest, and warm up on cold days.
WHAT’S IN THE KIT?

The model is made of precision laser cut bass wood, fiber board, plastic,

construction, with peel and stick trim, windows and doors. Custom made
metal castings have been designed to match the prototype for the Smoke
