I recently purchased an older run Overland Models wide vision caboose. This all leads to more questions for me and I know very little about Frisco cabooses. I bought an older run of a Oriental brass Frisco caboose. The ladder tops are all wrong, (my bad) and the axle generator is a truck mount generator that was soldered to the center like the large generator that we have talked about in this post. So far so good. All I gotta do is remove the truck mounted generator and install the body mounted one as described earlier in this thread. This leaves me with several other questions. Please bear with me, and I will get to the questions soon. This caboose has the round smoke stack on top, and smaller battery/tool boxes on each side, with a long cylindrical appliance pointing downwards on one side. So my question is what numbers on the SL-SF were these cabooses in? Also given the ladder tops were all wrong (on the Oriental Brass model). Were there any cabooses that remained in the brownish paint that had the roof top walkways and end ladders removed (or modernized) during the final years of independent operation? I guess re-doing the ladder tops would be the easiest, being as if the ladders are removed the end handrails need to be rebuilt too. Any advise is a great thing here, not afraid of taking my resistance soldering system to work, but if I do, I want it to be correct. Been looking at images on Google and I cannot find any modernized SL-SF cabs in the as delivered scheme. I can also see that the only consistency is there is no consistency. Seems as every cab was as different even in the same # series too. Thanks guys for the help and advise.
