Continuing my rail journey into the Wild West, I present my 4th creation, a Santa Fe Western Caboose:

Although I think it's a little red. I feel that it would be nice to break it up a little, just not sure how. I'm probably wrong, but perhaps swapping the red ladders for black ladders might help.
Anyway, it's a nice addition to the western Santa Fe.

And an old Union Pacific from the Nevada ghost town Rhyolite:
This may be the last car of the Santa Fe Western.
I modified adding some grill bricks as well as a sloped roof. I think I like this better:

Is it just me, or does that remind you of one of those Railroad Museums in the city, like the California State Railroad Museum.
(Ok, the last one is not from the California State Railroad Museum, but you get the point, right?)

As soon as I saw the handrails going up the side I thought of 1x2 plate modified with handle :-) Unfortunately I cant see where I'd put them on your model and legthening it would lose some of the westerny feel.
You could consider curved slopes for the roof if you dont like it, but I think it works here.

EDIT: I had also considered replacing the yellow windows with white, but I sort of like the color scheme as it is.
