Several models have been produced in HO scale of the Northeastern steel caboose over the years.  Before the P2K model, Life-Like cranked out tens of thousands trainset-quality models:

Lindberg also offered a model, later marketed by Mantua in their "Heavies" line and still available from Model Power ("Mantua Classics"):

Eastern Car Works had a decent kit for this car, including different ends to model variations.  Some modelers had complaints about the roof curvature, so YMMV.
