   To add to the list, some Steel ore cars,  similar to the Kilbourne & Jacobs steel orecars, as used by Grandby on their 3ft gauge Hidden CreekCopper line. Some of these car's ended up on the WP&Y as ballast cars.

   Plans shown in "Steel Rail & Silver Dreams".

  For a reefer "Rouge Breweries" out of Oregon.

Mr. Bachman,

I would like to see more Maine type rolling stock, Combine, Caboose
or exsisting stock lettered for SRRL
Disconect log-bunks like on the FM
Remember the kit undecorated in the Big Hauler line some years ago?
Would be great to have for kit bashing, and save on assembly costs?
Thanks Cool Cool Cool Cool

Seems like it is time for a long caboose to go with your short caboose.
Thanks.

Yes I agree a new caboose either long or short would be wonderfully accepted ( not a 4 wheel though ) also a steel box another great idea, would be welcome to my roster ! Cheesy  Grin  Cheesy

Steel Boxcar would be a favorite.

Something for the Loggers: Logging Caboose - a West Side prototype for example...

More Maine 2-footers rolling stock: SR&RL after you already produce the Forneys...

Yes, please more Maine rolling stock and how about log loaders, cranes and/or rail mounted steam shovels to go with the side dumps and V dumps.

How'a bout some ET&WNC Piggy backs. Great way to haul trailers around. Would go really great for the new Ten Wheelers.

Grandt Line offers a C&S style 4-wheel short caboose kit in O that would be realtively easy to modify to On30.  Check their web page, there are pictures of it up and you can buy a lot of the parts seperately, I've been using them on some SP/C&C and D&RGW scratchbuilds.

Something that would be relatively easy to tool up is a snowplow based on the current caboose.  A new roof to move the cupola to one end and a blade with some side wings designed to fit on one end of the body and over the sides of it, would do the job.  I was debating on scratchbuilding some parts to turn one of my cabooses into a plow.

Or an longer caboose, such as 505 & 506 of the ET&WNC. Just add some length to already existing cabeese, and make the cupola a little wider, and it would be perfect.
