    What is with the bay window caboose with a cupola on it?

    Many cabooses went to Cardin, Oklahoma to be scrapped after the Frisco was bought by the BN.

    Some one at Pitcher, OK did that to the caboose after they got it from the scrapper.

    It was never on the railroad like that.

    It is a fantasy piece so to speak.

    Bob is correct in his assessment.

    The caboose sits in front of a tiny mining museum. I believe it is still there after the tornado. I was never there when the museum was open, but did look in the end door windows of the caboose and it is a neat little museum in itself.

    If I remember correctly, there are several mounted photographs on the walls showing them moving it into that location. The cupola was cut off another caboose with a torch and slid down on top of the bay window one. No hole was cut into the roof of the bay window caboose to access it.

    It would make a great model to enter into a "fantasy" category at a train meet with a photo of the "prototype" sitting next to it!

    Caboose SLSF 1735 - BN 11710

    On my way home from the MP/SLSF convention in Joplin, MO today, I stopped by 5 Mile Camp in Quapaw, OK.

    I took some photographs of caboose SLSF 1735 - BN 11710. Glad to see the add on copula has been lifted off. Also glad to see it being restored and looking good, even if it is green and yellow.

    It would be great to see it Mandarin orange and white. This caboose has the distinction of being the last caboose ever built by the Frisco.

    Paul,

    This is a great find!

    I would love to work with you to produce drawings of this caboose, if that is something you would be able to do and be interested in.

    Any chance you will be acquiring this caboose for yourself?

    Ryan,

    I would be happy to help you with the drawings.

    This caboose is about 2 hours from Tulsa, OK and I will be back in the area in about 3 weeks. I found this caboose a few weeks ago after digging up information on the internet and locating the camp on Google Earth.

    I called the camp and inquired about buying it but they said it was not for sale.

    Hi Ryan,

    I replied to the email but I am not sure if it went through.

    Let me know if you got it.

    Sure did, Paul.

    I got it as I was running out the door to go to work last night.

    Giving this thread a bump to stimulate activity.

    We still need plans posted for this class of cabooses.

    A decade ago there were several posts concerning getting plans drawn up.

    Have plans been found or developed for the Frisco built bay window cabooses?

    Could the plans be made available as 2D scale drawings with dimensions and 3D plans for potentially printing the cabooses in HO-scale and N-scale?

    Please also see the post asking these questions on the thread Cabooses SLSF 1726-1735 - Bay Window Road Pool Cabooses - Diagrams, Drawings, Plans - Inquiry.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Mark
