I think someone at Trainz had an brain issue.

Lovely piece. No roofwalks, cupola doesn't sit on the roof, no roofwalks, no way to safely get out of the end doors, roof is warped, standard plastic Athearn trucks and Kadees, underbody is...meh.
Fifty six bucks?
Plus requisite shipping?

Something special here I'm missing?

Ladder rungs haphazard at best.

I made a drovers style caboose in 1947 when I was 13 from some type of cardboard that looked as good.Maybe better.
However I used Lionel trucks and couplers which I bought. The rest was on hand.

It's not a drover's caboose - that's a flanger; Gloor Craft kit.

I realize that, just making a point while I still remember that I once could do stuff. :)
