Every time a dweller levels up within the vault, you'll get as many caps as is the dwellers new level. What happens after the dweller has reached level 50? Do the caps keep coming in chunks of 50 or does this source of caps dry up?
No, you won't get any more caps from a dweller after they reach level 50. Their level gauge will be always full from then on, so even if they are working on a room that just produced resources, their XP won't go up, thus they will never level up again and you won't get caps from that dweller anymore.
