I needed a battery car for my 0-6-0 Porter. Since it is a small locomotive, and will be pulling ore cars, a box car would not look right. A search on-line found “work” caboose that I thought would look good in the planned train. I had an Aristo Craft two axel caboose sitting on my shelf, so I converted it into a work caboose.

Here is the caboose with new decals, more weathering, and clutter on the work deck.

Here is a better shot of the Porter with it's new battery car caboose and one of the side dump ore cars it will usually be pulling.
