The End of the Train

A catalogue of all cabooses and other cars that accompanied freight trains from my collection (click the picture to open or right-click to open in new window or download)

American freight locomotives pull freight trains with at the end a caboose. Since I have some freight locomotives (including a BigBoy) I also have cabooses. English so called “loosely coupled goods trains” have a brake-van at the end of such a train. There were also French, German and Japanese cars that accompanied freight trains, respectively called Fourgon de queue, Güterzugbegleitwagen and Kankyuusha.
This small catalogue contains all cabooses and other cars that accompanied freight trains from my collection. I have this type of cars in various gauges and scales of different brands. This catalogue is organised in two parts: the first larger part shows all American cabooses, the second part the non-American “cabooses”.
