IN the 1960s, MEC shops converted a few old boxcars into cabooses. They had plywood sides. I kitbashed one fron an Athearn BB boxcar

More kitbashes, please.

I constructed this boxcar by fabricating new sides from styrene for a plastic kit. I was working from memory about an article in an old magazine, so I don't know how true it was to the example.
