I have a 'thing' with cabooses... not sure why, but it goes back to my childhood, even before I got a trainset for Christmas.

Contrary to most trainsets of the time, and unlike the other kids I knew, I made sure the caboose roadname always matched the locomotive. Looking back on it, I'm amazed that this fundamentally basic concept was rarely followed.

These days, I'm still enamored of the caboose, it's long-lost tradition and the ghost of its importance.

These few are bashed from kits or RTR models. They're copies of actual prototypes, including a 'frog-eye' marker light and firecracker antenna.
