|I have been trying to find plans for the Simpson #700 caboose
(in front of the post office in Shelton).
I have a bunch of photos,
but I guess I am going to have to develop a set of plans myself.
I haven't checked the museum yet, but I will soon.
I had also hoped I could find a kit or ready-to-run caboose that was very similar.
The only ones that I can find are "Out of Stock".
So scratch building is my only option.
One lesson I have learned is that, in the new environment,
if you see something you want, and it is "In Stock", buy it.
I did find what looks like a great kit for a Great Northern wood caboose.
I have lusted after it for some time, but it has always been "Out of Stock".
It popped up "In Stock" at Walthers, so I jumped on it.
I won't need it for some time,
but I can be pretty confident it won't be available when I do need it.
