Hobart Estates logging caboose (SK-14)

( Out of stock )Hobart Estates logging caboose.

This kit is a faithful reproduction of the No. 3 caboose used on the Sierra Nevada Wood and Lumber Company (later renamed the Hobart Estates Co. in 1894) from some time prior to 1894 until cessation of operations in 1937. Originally built by Carter Brothers of San Francisco (or perhaps Hammond) as a four-wheel "bobber" with link and pin couplers, swing motion trucks and knuckle couplers were substituted later on. The only photographs we have been able to locate of the Hobart cabooses are of Nos. 2 and 3; we do not know if there ever was a No. 1. The No. 2 caboose is very similar to the No. 3, the primary difference being in the construction of the underframe and the cupola windows. As a result, No. 2 was some 4" - 6" taller than No. 3. Also, the cupola of No. 2 was replaced at some time with one with vertical sides. This kit includes Carter Bros. Trucks.
