To our knowledge, no one has incorporated Prince Streets' edit to reuse the floor and details from an Atlas caboose to model this CPR Plywood caboose.
This model represents a CPR plywood sheathed caboose. These classic Canadian vans were fixtures on CPR branchline service across the country and operated in every province the CPR itself did--coast to coast from the CPR's Dominion Atlantic in Nova Scotia to CPR's Esquimalt & Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. The prototypes remained in service through the late 1970's.
Based on the actual blueprints these unique models include some special design features. The shell is made thinner at each window so glazing sits nearly flush. Handrails on the shell itself are "cast in place" but with a slight reveal added to each so a pin wash will make them look freestanding without sacrificing proportions or scale size.
