"Hmm... what's Chuck doing
selling my masterpiece...?"


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

That caboose was part of a collection I bought a few years back and has been hanging around on a shelve in the shipping room ever since. I never quite knew what to do with it so I decided that humor was the the only way to free up the shelf space. Will be interesting to see what happens...add it to your watch list  ;D ;D

Oh great, Chuck... You won't stock any WM rolling stock because "it's so far away" but you join the CRHS?...
Harumph.

"lol, and 5 bids already."

Yah, and a $3.25 total not counting shipping.  Even badly weathered I never saw an Espee caboose look so bad...

If I saw this at a show, it would not even meet the 'when in doubt offer (or charge) five dollars' rule.  I would consider paying two dollars, maybe three, so that I could strip it and do something else with it.

I can see that the postage alone is more than I would pay.

(No Chuck, this is not a stab at you, postage is what the US POD says that it is).

Maybe under 10 layers of paint, the new owner finds a MT collector piece worth 10,000s of dollars.

I used to use brake fluid to strip HO , but once I got into N , and into these forums , I was told that the brake fluid will brittlize the plastic . In fact one of my HO F-7 shell's side steps broke off , and at that time I thought it was maybe a fix that was undone by the application of brake fluid , but given the passed on new knowledge I now feel brittling caused by the brake fluid was the cause ( Maybe they should call it Break Fluid ) . I guess it's ok for brass , and easier on your hands than acetone , with or without gloves .

Some stuff will stand up to brake fluid.  Kato F-units and most Atlas first generation power will.  RR HW passenger cars will stand up to it. Funny thing, the too light B&O paint job will also stand up to the brake fluid.  That must be the most difficult paint job that I have ever tried to strip.

Still, I soak it for as little time as possible and toothbrush off the paint as quickly as possible and rinse as quickly as possible.

The LL shells will not stand up to it.

Kato PA shells will not stand up to it. 

I, like Richie, had the snapping stirrup problem on the Kato PA and the LL cab unit shells.  Fortunately, Gold Medal sells replacement stirrups that are easy to use.

B-mann shells will not stand up to it.

I find that the ninety-one per-cent alcohol works well, in most cases.  It makes really short order of the paint jobs on the MT pretty trains FTs.  Ten minutes and those paint jobs are gones-VILLE , baby.  No toothbrush needed.  You do, however, need to give your hands a good scrubbing.
