Here's a nifty recent kit from Al Westerfield -- a temporary SP caboose made from B-50-6 wood boxcars, one of which is shown at right  with its original boxcar paint (why change what ain't broke). They're described in detail in Tony Thompson's book  "Southern Pacific Freight Cars Volume 2: Cabooses."  On my model I, substituted some brass parts for resin ones, including the corner steps, center step and smoke jack (far right).
