Bob,



The only Rio Grande brass HO caboose I ever owned to date was a PFM/GOM.
I sold it and later found out it's windows were incorrectly laid out. I
sold it because I didn't want yet another painting project but on
hindsight, I'm glad to be rid of it because of the windows. Heck, if one
had brass, it ought to be correct... FYI, the windows were symmetrical
on both sides, but (correct me if I am wrong), Rio Grande's steel 3
window cabooses windows were offset, one side from the other.
In-other-words, 3 windows one one side were forward and on the other side
were shifted back by one rivited panel.
