History Narrow gauge (36”) Caboose, often called a 'bobber' by railroaders. She was one of many built by Jackson and Sharpe for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad for use in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA. They were used, in updated form, well into the 1930's, and several are in use today on tourist railroads.
This historically accurate and highly detailed full scale (1:1) Caboose would be an ideal Key Asset to late 19th Century period or Western themed set design and imaging, and is capable of extreme close-ups and rendering. It is a perfect companion to my C-16-60 locomotive, as TurboSquid # 615818 and Trestle # 703177.
The Model The SolidWorks™ CAD model was reverse-engineered from original builder's folio drawings and period photographs. It is representative of my museum quality work in the field of Industrial Archeology (IA). The rendered images depict a period correct color often referred to as the 'Little Red Caboose'. I color-mapped the features and appropriate surfaces to allow simplified material and color application to suit your scheme. The lettering was created in SolidWorks as a 'Split Line', and is not actual geometry, allowing the use of your own labels or decals.
The high resolution model contains 1,050,577 polys. All parts and/or surfaces were color mapped within SolidWorks™, and migrated to the .obj forma. t The SolidWorks™ model was converted into the .obj format using SimLab Animator. Rendering is in KeyShot2 Pro from Luxion.
