Bobber caboose to be refurbished

Post by Alan Lott » Fri May 09, 2014 6:27 pm

The Boss, during one of his surreptitious prowls around the property, spotted this bobber still in its former owners colours.

He asked why but got no satisfactory answer. He siad it had to be shopped as soon as trafiic allowed and that the yellow would stay, just the aluminium to be painted duck egg blue and details in mid green.

They don't call him a cheapskate for nothing! ;)

I awake at dawn, whatever time of year, which means right now I am usually awake before six am. It is a lovely time of day to gather your thoughts for the day. There are priorities of course, but second upon my mental list will be my railroad and if the weather is good what I will run.

Accordingly, yesterday, during my morning ruminations, I realized that there is a possibility that a car, which can be made into a flatbed by removing its body, could well come onto the property. This would mean that the bobber body could be mounted on the flat bed and a nice long caboose made.

So, hopefully, that will be the project. The paint scheme mentioned in a previous post will still apply.

As they say 'watch this space'. :D
