This was my dad's caboose when he was model railroading over 50 years ago. It was pretty busted up when I got it, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. The broken roof corners were the worst issue. I restored it to functionality rather than try to make it look new, making the missing window frame look old and worn is going the opposite direction from normal.
I have purchased a few things because I remembered them from my childhood but this is the only piece I have that actually came from dad's layout. Also a pic with the Ten-Wheeler it will be chasing from now on

Looking good!

Murv2;

That's a nice looking caboose. If anyone bugs you about the dirt on it, just say you weathered it. :laugh: You did a nice job making replacements for those missing corners. Good work! :thumbsup:

Caboose looks good.
I also like how you used a Klingon Cloaking Device on the turntable

Nice work.
It's always cool when dormant heirlooms are reborn.
