Re: USRA Cabooses

Pittsburgh and West Virginia had wood USRA-style cabooses before they acquired steel cars. Caboose 804 looks like it is. I don't have my resources handy, but I'm thinking at least 804-812 could be USRA wood cars. The P&WV had some others with straight coupola sides that look like USRA cars otherwise, from photos 802 is such a car. If I do any of these I will use the F&C kit.
Lehigh and Hudson River had them as well.

Seth, I am not familiar with that article, nor the photo. The B&M did have some shorter wood-body cabooses, usually (always?) with three windows. Their resemblance to the USRA cars seems pretty distant to me eye.
Google up "B&M caboose 104610" and see what you think. It is currently on display in White River Jct.
