Hi all.
Four wheeled cabooses were usually known as "Bobber" cabooses.
Source. Caboose (book) Brian Solomon & John Gruber 2001.
They date back to the early days of the Railroad but lasted for a long time especially on short lines.
Colin.

Excellent photos, guys.

@Brandon; I've done the BR211 V100 with one coach many times.

@AK; I'm looking forward to my new BR141 with a couple of Silberlinge.

Excellent find
That's part of the Rheingold train.
A regular sight in the days of the TEEs
Which was then merged with the part coming from Hoek van Holland and went all the way to Mannheim, be split again with one part going to Basel/Geneve and the other to Stuttgart and München
All these can be simulated on your layout!

Are you sure the last car is on the picture? I'm not sure. To me it looks like a long train.

Yes Tom,

You are right. ThumpUp

And my FD is probably right, too, when stating that I need reading glasses. Sad

So, this still qualifies for the "mixed railroads" thread instead, since there is at least one Italian FS car involved.Smile
