Neat little cabooses!
The trucks should be ready in a couple of weeks.
Do you know the full number series and built date for these?

Thanks Brian. They are converted from the Athearn bay window caboose.

There are 2 slightly different styles with different window placement
and end/pilot handrails and they probably date from the 1940s.

The earlier style with windows closer to the centre are numbered from
201 to at least 220, although I don't know if every number was used.
the cabs with the windows closer to the ends are numbered from at
least 223 to 229. Again I don't know if the numbers were consecutive.

That's the price I pay for being English - no reference material over
here other than the internet.
