Western Pacific (WP & SN) Caboose HO Scale

Product Description
Western Pacific (WP) and Sacramento Northern (SN) outside braced caboose, HO Scale

This model does not include a chassis or trucks.  

The model is designed for hand rails of approximately 0.015" diameter phoshor bronze wire.  The caboose end rail stantions, chimney and roof ventilator are also hollow so that then can accept 0.015" diameter wire for reinforcement.  Note that the deeper holes may need to be cleaned of printing debris.  The actual holes can be seen through the part and extend 2/3s the length of the parts.

This is a scaled N Scale model so the coupler pocket will need to be modified for HO couplers.  Most of the grab irons are 18".  BLMA can be used instead of bending your own.  You will need to find suitable ladders.  The window screens were created with Ngineering Ultra-fine Square Mesh NM013.  Brake wheels are also not included.  For the chains on the end I recommend the pre blackened A-Line 40 links per inch product.

I highly recommend staining the parts before assembly.  The parts are translucent and it is otherwise hard to judge alignment without this step. Be sure to thoroughly clean off remaining wax residue from models. I use 91% rubbing alcohol and an ultrasonic cleaner.
