There is a plan for a PRR bobber in the September 1960 Model Railroader. If you don’t have access I can probably get you a scan.

An excellent write-up and pics of the B&O Bobber Cabooses.
However, I had found an Ambroid PRR Bobber Caboose kit that I want to scratchbuild in styrene. So I would love to have similar information on the PRR Bobber Cabooses.
I have a number of PRR pics and believe my kit is the type NC cabooses from comparing pics. I have seen a number of type ND caboose pics but don’t yet understand the difference between NC and ND cabooses.
At a recent NMRA meet, the presenter had a book, Cabooses of the Norfolk and Western with him that had about 18 pages with pics and diagrams and text on N&W Bobber Cabooses. So if you are a N&W fan, like I am, that may be of interest to you.
Thank you, Eric for the link.
More images of Ed’s 4-wheel caboose are in this blog post. Plus extra detail on the B&O prototypes.
