Now that I have a trio of excellent-looking Alcos to power my brick hopper train, I realized the caboose assigned to that duty was a bit... lackluster. I had styled it after a Lionel design, which was a rather cheap/crude model, and my L scale version reflected that. So, I scrapped the unsatisfying slant-cupola design, and proceeded to use the bits to form a red-white-&-blue striped standard-cupola caboose to match the Bicentennial Apache unit. This build only took about an hour and a half, and might have been shorter if I hadn't made a couple of errors. Enjoy the pictures!
