CN narrow gauge caboose

Initial thoughts. Looks like a CN narrow gauge caboose seen on the Newfoundland 42" gauge railroad. Has a better weight than expected so I feel I won't have to add much weight to the finished model. Over all, IMO the clean up will be easier than building from scratch. Some details are a bit heavy but the caboose seems sturdy and will be more than acceptable for operations and still look the part. I do like how the floor fits inside the car body, well done in the design work. The under body detail is good enough for my needs that I will probably not add anything but wire for the air lines. Wire for the grab irons will be added and should give the model some finer detail that is easily seen sitting on the layout.

Something I would like to see for assembly of this kit, and that would be a link to a page with tips and photographs of the prototype. Suggestions on paint colors and maybe a decal source. Just a guess, but I'm thinking box car HO decals should work for 'S' or maybe N. Again some photos would really be helpful.

If this kit is available down the road, I may consider buying another one. Also I'll be checking back for more kits that fit my model railroad needs.

Great to see Newfoundland Railway product available in HO scale. These items look fantastic, and I can't wait to get them painted up and running! Thanks.
