Scratcbuilt transfer caboose #101 at Norwood Yard on Marv Preussler's
The HO scale model is primarily built from 0.040" styrene; the roof is made from
aluminum. Marv added details from Detail Associates -- including
all-weather windows, coupler lift bars, curved side grab irons, end grab irons
and air hoses. The end railings and brakewheel assemblies are from a Walthers kit.
The trucks came from an Atlas caboose,
and the couplers are Kadee #58.
He painted the
model with Scalecoat Erie Lackawanna yellow,
decaled it with DM Decals and sprayed rust and roof brown on
it for weathering.
