I have a BLI Big Boy coming in the mail. It is #4014, but I want to run freight.

What would be a typical consist?

What type of caboose? Bay window, wide vision?

Thanks in advance.

I'd take a quick rout through ebay and pick the one you like. I saw a kit for a wood-sheathed UP caboose I'd snap up in a heartbeat if I were looking for more cabooses (cabeese?). Even if you aren't fond of Ebay it will give you and idea what's out there.

You would want to do research on which cabooses were in road freight use on the UP in the 1940's and into the 1950's.
