Re: L&HR NE caboose re-sheathing

Peter Ness

Hi Joe,
I will be using the JJL Erie caboose for sure when I get there. I have two NE cabooses, just need to learn when the L&HR were re-sheathed so I can do that one correctly. The RMC article is not clear when this happened. I could always model one of the couple that were no re-sheathed if I can't learn the answer...

Check out

Bethlehem Car Works and JJLModels for caboose kits that you could use.

Although I am modeling the New Haven Railroad, I want to run DL&W, LNE,
L&HR and Erie consists into Maybrook (only one train each, from staging for
interchange - and sorry, the Old & Weary was gone by '59).

I have the old RMC series of articles on the NE cabooses of the LNE& L&HR
and I've checked as many references on line to no avail, so I'm asking this
group if anyone can answer the following;

Were the L&HR NE cabooses (blt by Reading, etc) re-sheathed in plywood in
1959 or earlier. Later is obviously beyond the scope of this group and
doesn't matter to me in any case.

Also, while I'm at it, does any one know a source for the diamond tread
roofwalk in HO scale? I have some old cast metal Alloy Forms (I think)
material and I am thinking about using this to emboss 0.005" styrene sheet
unless there is a commercial product of which I'm not aware.

Thanks in advance,
Peter Ness
