Thread: Homebuilt caboose diagrams?

    Engineer Homebuilt caboose diagrams?

    Howdy folks,

    I have the diagram book purchased from the old Frisco Museum, but it does not have any of the home built caboose diagrams. Does anyone have access to them and would post them here in the appropriate series forum?

    I am especially interested in the PS-1 rebuilds.

    Best regards,

    That most likely is a covered bulk storage bin for some solid material that is just piled up but needs to be protected from the weather.

    Howdy,

    That would be great, thanks for looking.

    The structure appears to me like one of the maintenance facilities used to store winterizing materials such as salt and sand.

    Mike is right on the money! These types of buildings are prevelant all over Kansas along the turnpike and they hold salt and chemicals for use in the winter. There are usually big maintenence dept. dump trucks lined up outside and a winch and rack where the salt spreader beds can be put on and taken off. The truck can actually back inside and be loaded and unloaded.
    Down in Texas they probably are used more for sand.

    The modern form of an igloo!
