Aurora & Portland Owner
Not sure why they would even do anything like this. Maybe the BN wasn't fond of Bay Window cabooses. Only one I've ever seen a picture of.


Been Nothin' Since Frisco
These bay window cabooses were originally built by Frisco. This particular caboose was in Picher, Oklahoma until a few years ago when it was moved to the 5 Mile Children's Camp in far NE Oklahoma. The cupola added to the top of the bays and roof has been removed. I'm not sure it was ever a permanent feature and it was the only one of these bay window cabooses to get such a modification.

Great job modeling it, by the way!
