John,

The April project will get posted whenever Ed decides to get off his a$$ and pick something...probably not until the end of the month.  ;D

To enter, first buy the appropriate car, then begin working on it.  ;)

Or, as most idi...people down here say...a Kay-buse.

Whats in a name, In Western Australia, {the nations capitol}, we dont have Cabooses, Cabeese or
any of those sort of things,;-} But, we do have Brake Vans, thats a little room on wheels that
grts towed around behind the Train with a "Dude" sitting inside trying too look important.

I guess that would do for a W.A. entrant in this Comp`??. Yes/No!.

The Pennsylvania Railroad didn't have "cabooses" either, Centauri, nor did the Canadian roads. PRR called them "cabin cars" and the Canadians refer to them as "vans". The same car is a "brake van" in the UK, although I don't believe those have the amenities of North American cabooses, which had desks, bunks, stoves, and toilets.

I for one would like to see your Western Australia brake van!

the Canadians refer to them as "vans".

We call them cabooses as well, both words are used with equal frequency.

So would I!  ;D

I for 1 would love to see more from "Oz"! They have some very unique cars &
locos from what I understand in various gauges. Still an idea for me in the future
to attempt something from down there-possibly QR (Queensland Rail) since I have several
friends in Queensland. (1 in the Northern Territory too!  ;))
