Trix: HO Scale Caboose

Hey Folks,

Has anyone seen and/or purchased the new Trix Union Pacific caboose as shown in their ads with their new BIG BOY steam engine? Ditto on their UP boxcar?

If so, could you please offer your opinion on these cars.

Thanks So Much! Matt and Kathleen

I have two of the Trix (Two) and one of the Marklin (Yellow) Caboose. I think they are very nice. The Marklin flanges were two deep for code 70 track but I understand you can send the wheel sets back to them and get free new wheel sets, I used an extra Atlas caboose trucks and replaced the trucks and installed Kadee number 47 couplers.. The only thing is that the Caboose's are a bit expensive though I bought one at a swap meet for $30.00.

I have seen the freight cars and are very prototypical to even the builders plate to the year and road number.
