Caboose on the Loose?

Nope, not anymore, it's now firmly coupled to the rest of the train.  Trucks, wheels, couplers and underside toolboxes are installed.  The toolboxes need to be painted, then it's on to the brake components and truss rods, and finally the railings, ladders, grab irons, roof walks, smoke pipe, and so on.  Jeez, there's a lot left to do...

I'm hoping to have this thing completely finished in time for the Twin Cities Division meeting on October 13th.  The topic for the modeling contest is, what else - cabooses!
