- The D&RGW Long Caboose - Page One -


With the introduction of this model kit, ( in about 1988 ) we achieved a NEW PLATEAU of ACCURACY and DETAILING! A Pinnacle that stands until this day! Nothing, ( Save for our Short Caboose. ) has even come close !

Not only does the model have a complete interior, with all the closets and "bunks" of the prototype, but you can even "position" the bunks to suit your whims! The "Water Cooler" and even the "Kitchen Sink" are there for all to see! After all, this was a railroad mans "home away from home", and more often than not, a less stressful one at that!

With Careful Study of the Assembly Procedures outlined in the comprehensive instructions included, and a little Extra Care in assembly, you, like others before you, can end up with a model of unbelievable detail and accuracy that would be a shoe-in to win any Model Contest! ( Yes, we even show you how to build the model in such a way as make the sides and roof removable! )

Our model represents the specific road number #0503 most accurately.. It was this caboose that we measured to get all of the intricacies of the Interior for our model, and believe me, this interior IS ACCURATE..

The model can also be used to represent #0505, #0540 and #0579, as they all were quite similar, although not totally identical.. But, in reality, when a model is this accurate, who's going to argue over the exact location of a Handrail End??

Of course, the model includes prototypical 3'-7" Caboose Trucks moulded in an engineering plastic bearing the trade name "Celcon ®". And these are equipped with the now Standard-of-the-Industry P-B-L Nickel Plated Brass Wheelsets.

All parts of this model kit, save for the hand grabs, brake rods and piping, and wheelsets are injection moulded in high impact styrene plastic. Decals and Genuine Kadee ® Couplers are included, of course, along with comprehensive instructions and "hints" to ensure your model will end up like the one shown here...
