Spotlight Review

Save your money. I have 13 cabooses in this price range including this model. The other 12 are from Athearn and Roundhouse including bay window, cupola, drovers caboose and wide vision cabooses. All of them have glazing. This caboose does not. All the others have good detailing. This caboose does not. Looking from the side if back lit you can see through the sides of the car body as there are gaps on both ends of where the cupola is fixed. Under car detail is very poor. Not even battery boxes under the car and even brake detail is poorly cast. Of course it has virtually useless Bachmann Easy Mate couplers on it. The trucks look plastic with no detail and are so poor not even paint will help the appearance. I may cannibalize it for the metal wheels but even those have plastic axles. If I had known these things beforehand I would never have purchased this model even if it cost $1. The only reason why I am giving it one star is because there is no lower rank. The only thing this caboose is suited for is being behind a train running in a circle under a Christmas tree, and only then if your child is easy to please.
