Try JnJ trains directly. Don't know if he has any kits that are not spoken for.

Inkscape is a free open source alternative. So far it's handled .eps files fine for me.
I don't see a photo on the JnJ site, can someone post an image of the caboose here please?

Check the Baltimore & Ohio site on this board. The Jan- Feb 2008 issue of N- Scale magazine has a great article by Greg Jones on how to assemble this kit.Bigsix

Here is a naked picture of one. All it needs is a few decals....hint hint John.
There are more construction shots of it in my caboose album:

I'm hoping that about a dozzen of those caboose kits are on their way to our shop. I have had them on Backorder from JNJ for over a year now. The caboose shown in the picture above is a test shell that I was sent to be able to get the decals right.
BTW - there may be some test shots of the decals by next week. Next time you see the caboose above, it may be lettered.Tony Hines

The finished decals look awsome! The quality is really amazing. Under a magnifying glass, you can read the data printing. The curves are very smooth. The vectors worked better than I had expected.
The proofs are completed. After a "once over", they should be ready to run.

Oh....I forgot to add....
The resolution is 1200 pdi. Absolutely crisp. FAR superior to traditional silkscreening.

That caboose may just be the ticket for me to begin to model the B&O. Saw so many of them at the rear of a train when I was a kid. They were so uniquely B&O. Will decals be available commercially?
