The Pittsburgh & Lake Erie RR established in 1875 connected the steel centers of Connellsville PA, Pittsburgh, and Youngstown Ohio hauling coal, coke, iron ore, limestone, and steel. The P&LE was known as the “Little Giant” due to the amount of tonnage that it moved was dramatically out of proportion to its actual number of route miles. Only 120 miles long the P&LE earned the most revenue per mile of any railroad in the United States before its demise in 1992. No. 508 is one of ten bay window cabooses built at P&LE’s own shops in 1950 to New York Central Plans. After its retirement in 1991 N0. 508 was donated to the Railroad Museum of PA.
About this creation


This is my favorite rail car I’ve built so far. When I spotted it at the museum I knew I would end up building it one day. I spent quite a bit of time getting the interior an underside details as close to the prototype as possible.



Caboose #508 is now spending its retirement at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg, PA.





Full under body detail.


This model features a full interior and opening doors.







Here my MOC of #508 is sitting on the real #508.
