Buddy L Outdoor Railroad Red Caboose T-Reproductions Large Scale Pressed Steel Train Car


You can now own the legendary Buddy “L” Outdoor Railroad Caboose, one of the toys that captured the dreams and imagination of children of all ages. This caboose was made in the USA and has been tirelessly recreated to the smallest detail. Our toy is a new fully licensed exact remastering of the Buddy L Outdoor Railroad Caboose from decades ago. This rendition is something that can be enjoyed and played with or displayed with pride. The “Outdoor Railroad” Caboose is authorized by Buddy-L ® and manufactured under license by T-Reproductions of Johnson City, TN. The caboose is made of pressed steel, and the paint is baked on per Buddy L specs. This caboose is dusty, dirty and possibly has some nicotine staining. There is minimal scratching and scuffing to the paint, and no dents or dings detected. The roof of the caboose has some sort of mildew like discoloration that we were unable to remove.  All decals are strong with no lifting detected. The size is gigantic as shown, at over approximately 22″ x 6”. We encourage you to peruse the photos to get a better idea of condition and quality.


Buddy L History:

Buddy L was founded by Fred A. Lundahl when he wanted to make toys that were new, different, and durable.  Buddy L produced cranes, steamrollers, trucks, trains and construction toys. Buddy L toys were named after the founder`s son Arthur. Lundahl introduced the line in 1921, starting with a pressed steel pick-up truck that expanded into a veritable fleet of almost 30 cranes and other construction toys some five years later. Throughout the years the company that manufactured Buddy L had many names beginning with Moline Pressed Steel until Mr. Lundahl sold the company during the depression.  After that the company switched hands a few times before being sold off in 1995 by SLM International under bankruptcy protection. By 2010, Buddy L it was owned by Empire Industries of Boca Raton, Florida, a subsidiary of Empire of Carolina where it has become more of a name than a toy maker.
