Kind of a shame that they were relegated to work service so quickly.
I wonder if anyone has taken the time to really focus on a good kitbash or
scratch-bash of it? I don't think a scratch-bash would be that hard.

You asked, “I
wonder how long they lasted before going into MW services? Beautiful example
of a rebuild.”
The caboose in question was built as a temporary caboose: “In 1947 and
1951-52, traffic levels again reached high levels, and Union Pacific again
found that it didn't have sufficient cabooses for road service.”
the arrival of 100 new CA-5 steel cabooses in 1952, this … group of 71
temporary cabooses was re-assigned to maintenance-of-way service as
of the Union Pacific Railroad by
Don Strack and James L. Ehrenberger p78.
