« Part 234: Hot Rod Mustang #2 Part 235 of Toy Construction series Part 236: Hopper Car For Reading Train »

Got it in my head the the Reading train needs some cars so ordered the Gatto plans that match up with the train.
This will be my third caboose but all are completely different.
It also come with a Hopper car which will be a new type car for me, it also comes with a passenger car but it’s I can’t remember but it’s way long so may build a cattle car instead down the road.

{I love to build cattle cars. LOL}
The project page for the Caboose is here.

I forgot to bring the camera with me the first day but you get the idea.

These windows take way to much time for my feeble nerves. LOL

I should point out that this caboose is quite a bit smaller than the Toys and Joys caboose so, the only real difference other than that is the Gatto gives details for the inside where the T&j doesn’t but if you check out my blog on that model there's some ideas to fix that.
