Reading Bobber Caboose drawing?

Post by PRR5406 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:23 am

Anyone have a PDF of a Reading bobber caboose, as might have traveled behind an A5a Camelback?

Received some in a set of emails. If anyone has photo details, those might be nice.

Not precisely what I was after, but informative and useful, nonetheless. I did received an article with drawings, from Mr. XXXXX, for which I offer thanks.
A Reading bobber would be a nice addition to a complete branch line train. Several years ago, I did two L&NE bobbers which turned out quite lovely.

Yes, the second one gives more on what size they have to be.

Wow, those would have been nice when I started my bobber caboose build. Had to extrapolate from a set of drawings for a 1/29th scale plans. Hey Dick, where are you getting your pedestals, hmmm?
