Well, that would put a damper on my ordering, too! Is that including fedex, customs, VAT, etc? Or what exactly, makes it so high? From US to Canada???

I'm a caboose fanatic.
If Accurail made them, I'd have a real problem... I'd have to get almost every one of them.

Saw this caboose while on Amtrak's Empire Builder from Chicago to Portland OR. This was next to the Columbia River, attached to a work train. Not Exactly like HO, but thought it might interest the caboose collectors.

I was asked how many cabooses I own...
In post #47 my reply was incomplete.
In addition to those listed, I have three C&O, two CSX, and an old unbuilt C&EI Athearn kit.
I bought them, partly because I like them, but mostly for freelance bashing into private-owned roster stock.

So I got windows in it last night & Put in a LED with a bridge in it. Now I am thinking an side lanterns.... what’s everyone’s thoughts on that? Also I think need to paint, or put in something so the LED won’t shine through the body shell. It looks a bit weird at night with a glowing red caboose! Lol

when I install lights or LEDs i always put shrink tube around the bulb, leaving only a very small controlable space for light to escape. then I can have the light only where I want it .

If the LED is for internal illuminaton and is too bright you can do as stated above, with a tinfoil reflector. the LED would point to foil and light reflected from foil illumintes interior. this also allows you to add color to the foil to make a mood .
