Hi Everyone,
I'm new to the board and to ON30.  I've purchased a few Bachmann ON30 steamers and now looking for rolling stock and in particular a caboose.  However, supply is pretty well dried up as I can tell so not sure if anyone knows where I might find one or are there alternatives?  I think Accucraft has one but not sure if you need to buy direct or a via a hobby shop (don't seem to find any in a shop).
I also saw some kits from Mount Blue Model Co. but not sure if they are good or not.
Any suggestions?
LeRoy

Hi LeRoy :wave:


I'm not that up on On30 stuff.

But some of my favorite kits are made by 'Chivers Finelines'.


They have some great 20' and 14' styrene car kits.

Several caboose & combine kits, with or without cupolas.

The ones I've seen made up & painted look very nice indeed.

I believe that in the U.S.A they are distributed by 'International Hobbies'

The 'elusive caboose' ? ... L:
