Windows for modernized NM cabooses in HO? 7 years 1 month ago #3753

Somehow, I missed these. Got any sets left? Or would you consider another run of them? I'd take 4 sets, maybe more.

It's in the works. We'll inform you of when we have them in hand. The way that the guy who does the etchings is so backed up. It will probably be after Christmas before we get them.

OK guys... I think I might get around to doing these on 1 or 2 of my cabooses. I have some of the original order about 2 years ago (yes... can take that long to get to "things"! LOL)

BUTCH-JOHN... when you installed these, did you redo the window material? or, did you just glue them over the existing windows and leave the original window material as is?

I am guessing that if I wanted to be "more" correct, I would remove the stock window glazing and replace it on each window, after I install these new frames, making the glazing flush with the back of the new frames.

I thought about placing the new frames ON some thin glazing material, and then gluing to the caboose.

Also... on my caboose, the door windows have a vertical mullion on them. Do I remove that or leave as is, since the replacement is horizontal?

This wasn't quite covered in the instructions.
THANKS!

Also... while I will look at my rolling stock book, since I do not have the caboose book... on the picture of Butch's conversion, the end hand rails are stock, in yellow. Were they that way for real or differently painted??

reason for all of these questions is that at our next NMRA Division meeting we're doing cabooses as a modeling "bragging rights" only contest. This means I have about 3 weeks to get this done.
Thanks,
Barry

Barry:

Note the difference in the end railings between the cabooses with and without roofwalks. Let me know if I can provide more photos.
