UP CA-3 Caboose #25012


Recommended Posts

To accompany with my updated UP SD7 on local runs, I decided to modernise one of my Trix UP CA-3 cabooses from its original fifties appearance to an eighties one, in the years prior to withdrawal.

Β 

Noting that Microscale did the appropriate slogan for 25012, which I also had a picture of, that was selected as "the one".

Β 

I also added cupola and verandah window bars, replacement Kadee trucks and cupola marker lights (made from styrene and MV lenses attached). The first "2" of the number on the side looks a wee bit dodgy, but is the way it appears on the real thing (he said...).

Β 

I've got another two fifties re-numbered Trix UP CA-3 cabooses, which are great models, and now rarer than hens' teeth, but I think I'll keep them to run with my two UP ALCo FA/FB ABBA sets.
