Nearing completion of my Old 99 Cannonball. This is the last car, caboose. Made of Paduk Maple and a few odds and ends. For those that have taken notice, this is the third piece in my train set from T&J plans. Now just to build a nice bridge as a display stand, and of course some more track…..... truly an enjoyable project.
I will post pictures when this is completed …......

Nicely done. Really love the ‘old’ look it has very period appropriate.

Nice work – should be a fun display when all put together. I like the idea of a bridge.

Yes, I think a bridge could make a great display. Maybe sign the project with some graffitti…...

I’ve been waiting for the caboose after seeing such a great passenger car and train, now a bridge to house them on will be the topping on the cake!!!
There’s just something about the caboose their just so cool and not something you will see much if any.
Haven’t they stopped using cabooses altogether now a days?

Your trains are so intricately detailed. Some super nice eye candy, and extra super fine craftsmanship.
