This video is the first one in a series on how to prep, prime, paint and letter a Colorado narrow gauge brass caboose. This is a Pacific Fast Mail caboose manufactured in Japan, probably in the early 1960's. United started making these in 1959 and continued the manufacturing runs for about ten years. We will be adding the Denver and Rio Grande light box on top of the caboose and aiming for a date in the early years of the twentieth century.
