This is a multimedia kit designed to run on both 32mm and 45mm gauge track. It is based on Caboose No.553 which was built early in the 1900s for the then Phillips and Rangeley Railroad, later Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes before being renumbered 553 by the Maine Central after they brought the Railroad. This car survives in preservation today and is owned by the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum.

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.
