Blue "Ice Planet" Caboose
My first 8 stud wide train car.
About this creation

Hello, I'm still relatively new when it comes to making train MOCs. That being said, I think this one turned out pretty well. This is also a milestone for me in that it's also my very first 8 stud wide train car. For pure whimsy, I decided to make it in the blue and white color scheme of the Ice Planet Space subtheme, adding the decorated tile for the finishing touch. Please check out all my pictures and descriptions for more information on this car.

I'd have probably stuck with six wide, another fellow member in Pennlug had alread started making an 8 wide train. And since this stuff is going up at the NMRA show, I thought it best to have everything to scale. With that all said and done, I don't think I'll ever want to go back to 6 wide again. You can do so much more detailing with wider cars.

   Here's a nice shot of the Caboose. The dark grey piping is situated right over the stove for added realism. And yes, I know that the doors should be white, but I don't know where my white doors are right now. I think yellow looks just as nice.

   Here's the interior. There is a bunkbed in the top left, a stove and sink in the top right, a nightstand with lamp and a phone in the bottom left, and a dining area in the bottom right.

This is a nice caboose with a neat inside. But you fell short in your attempt to make it in Ice Planet colors. However, I look forward to your next attempt.
