here you are another caboose car, this time with bay windows and as usual, with full interior.
I'm not much sure about the color, I will look for another lighter solution soon.

Very nice :cry_happy:

I like to see things like this that dont show up every day and I do like the technique that you used for the bay window. I have seen a few more seamless designs where people have used snoted 2x2 45-degree slope bricks for the sides but I do prefer this look as it has a more classic Lego feel to it. I used it on my  Trans Rail Carrier for the train tec competition last year. The only issue that I had was finding a way to blend the roof in over the bay in a way that I was happy with.

Excellent use of the hinge pieces to create the bay windows.  It's really clever to see this design used for a caboose.

I'm not very familiar with cabooses as we don't have them here in Ireland but I like the look of this. Clever solution.
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0
