This is a multimedia kit designed to run on both 32mm and 45mm gauge track. It is based on Caboose No.552 which was built early in the 1900s for the then Sandy River Railroad, later Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes before being renumbered 552 by the Maine Central after they brought the Railroad. This car sadly doesn't survive in preservation today.
Comes complete with Bogies in the gauge of your choice from Houstoun Gate Locomotive Works and Accucraft Chopper Couplings. The kit is also available without these items. Note, this caboose does come with the beading around the windows as the prototype. The image shown is near twin BMS-301 Caboose 551. See the second image for the window layout.
