For Centralia Car Shops Union Pacific CA-3 caboose, we have a detail kit that contains roof
walkways, end platforms and steps.
A handful of railroads (NP, CB&Q and SP&S to name three) had Extened Vision Cabooses with Walkways on them. These two kits will
allow you to add walkways to the Atlas Model. Two walkway patterns are available. Each kit
includes walkways, brass suports, end platforms w/steps and ladders.
At least two railroads (GN and NW) had these extended vision caboose with walkways on them that 'exited' to
the right hand side of the car. ei. the ladder was to the right of the center of the car when
viewing it from the end of the car. We also have a kit of this style walkway. Included in the kits are
walkways, brass supports, end platforms with steps and ladders. This photo
shows an undecorated model with pre-production parts added to it.
If your Extended Vision caboose does not have a walkway requirement, you can still add the end platforms
and steps to your caboose.
For those who are a little more modern (the 90's +) and need your extended vision caboose
to reflect it has had its walkways yanked off but the supports left in place... We can help!
We now have two detail kits that consist of only walkway supports and ladders. The supports can
be applied to the roof of your caboose and the ladders to the end of the caboose. Ladders can be modified
by removing parts to represent about any prototype. The two kits differ in the left hand vs. right hand
mounted ladders and supports.
