Early UPRR Caboose

Post by Curtis Reid » Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:39 am

I've started work on an early UP caboose. From photos, it appears similar to the V&T cabooses 9 and 10, so I started with that model.
Here is a progress shot; I think I'm getting close (other than the trucks) .....

In a brown color:

and a Tuscan color:

Comments / criticisms/ corrections more than welcome!

Does anyone have any idea what the interior of one of these cars would look like? Right now, my model has an interior based on the similar V&T cabooses Nos 9 1nd 10, but I doubt that is accurate....

I wonder if the Union Pacific Museum might happen to have any interior views. Or any exterior views that would provide some idea of the interior arrangement.
