Bobber Caboose
The challenges in making a Bobber caboose in z is the trucks and couplers. The Marklin or MTL trucks
and couplers will make this Bobber caboose too long. One option was to build my own trucks and
couplers, but before I ventured into doing that I modified the MTL trucks to fit. I am still trying out different
materials to get a better looking caboose.
I used Marklin dark wheels with conductive paint on the modified MTL trucks to make electrical pickup. I
also made a constant lighting circuit with a gold cap that was small enough to fit inside the caboose with
enough space to add some people inside. Here are some pictures with different exposure levels to
capture the light inside.
