I have been trying to find plans for the Simpson #700 caboose
(in front of the post office in Shelton).

No joy. 
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.
