Correct base for MK&T Railroad caboose iron stove

From: "Margaret Reckert"

I have a "caboose" iron stove. MK&T Railroad item. I would like to display this in my home. The "base" is missing. I do not know if it should be a "platform" or 4 legs that it sits on. Unable to find a picture. Can you help me?

Please have your stove professionally and safely installed in compliance with building and fire codes with the proper spacing and materials for the walls and floor, ventilation, and flue so that you can enjoy the stove and not burn your house down or suffer from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Without seeing a photo of the stove you have, it is difficult to respond. There were several different common caboose stove designs available and used by different railroads. With a photo of your stove, we might be able to show you examples of the standard design for those particular stoves.
