Re: Red Caboose 40ft double door CB&Q boxcar

The ends for this car were of a 4/4 improved dreadnaught, and the the rivet detail on the Red Caboose sides are wrong. The C&BT automobile box with some archer rivet transfers could get you very close if you can't find a Sunshine kit.  There was a kit bash article close to this style of car,(CB&Q) done by Ed Hawkins in Railmodel Journal 6/1992, "Duplicating ACF Industries prototype"
