Hey Freerails. I'm curious if anybody knows how the interior of those 4 wheel cabooses are laid out.

I'm actually looking for ideas, I may build a small cabin this spring and I'm trying to figure out how to use my space in a very small footprint (the caboose minus end platform and cupola is 7'x7'x13') I figured a railroad caboose is a good place to look for ideas because well, we all know why.

Also maybe I'll put an interior C&S caboose model I have....

Thanks!

I guess to clarify I'm looking for info on the interior of these cabooses to see how the space is utilized and to apply that info to planning said cabin. Information gathered will be used to build and detail reasonably accurate model if a Kemtron brass kit of a C&S caboose as well.

So if anybody has helpful advice I'm all ears!

Hi Buck,
A quick Google image search for "C&S caboose" turned up some information of the short caboose interiors. These links might help you.

Thanks Dennis,
That answers my question about the interior.

Now if anybody has advice for assembling Kemtron kits, specifically ideas for cutting the components out of the sheet brass. They suggest. Razor saw.

Buck
