After a nice break, I've started making more V&T cars. Here is a work-in-progress shot of caboose numbers 5 and 6. Much of this car is conjecture, as there exists (so far) only one partial photograph of the car.
These two cars were built in 1871 by the V&T in the Virginia City car shops, and were originally numbered 3 and 4. When the new Kimball cars arrived from San Francisco in 1872, these were renumbered to 5 and 6. 5 was out of service by June 1897. 6 was converted to a carpenter sleeper by the turn of the century, and was scrapped by 1905.
This is a small car - only 19' over the end sills (24' over the platforms). It looks kinda ridiculous with passenger trucks underneath, but one source says that all V&T cabooses & coaches did have passenger trucks, so here you go!
