    Years ago in Trains magazine in an article featuring the Quanah, Acme, & Pacific railroad there was a photo of Hubert Wells standing beside a caboose quite similar to this one pictured. Who has that photo? I am searching, but it has not turned up yet. QAP!.jpg QAP2.jpg
    Additionally, a caboose like this one used to sit in a pasture between Paducah and Quanah, TX. Today it is gone, and I would bet a nickel it burned up in a pasture fire.

    Well...never mind what I posted above.
    I found a better caboose made by K-Line and decorated it with a pleasant surprise: decals made for QA&P boxcars and cabooses in O scale by Protocraft.com.

    The black and white photos are from the Protocraft website.
    I thought about cutting out the muntins on the side windows but decided against it. It is still pretty darn close to the real thing.

    I would have cut them out. But it looks great!

    The very first model at the beginning is a New York Central car.
