THE ULTIMATE DETAIL WITH THE BEST GENESIS FEATURES.
International Car Co. began specializing in caboose production as early as 1941. When the railroads entered the 1960s, many needed to replace their aging, in some cases home shop built, cabooses. International Car responded with a product that could be tailored to each railroads specific needs. Using quality components and modern engineering, ICC became a leading name within the industry.
Sharing ICC's commitment to quality and modern techniques, Athearn has not only recreated these iconic cars, but reinvented the quintessential features a Genesis caboose should have.

Perhaps one of the most recognizable icons of American railroading, the caboose completed the train. Cabooses provided shelter for the rear end crew. From the cupola or bay windows, the crew could keep a lookout for shifting loads, damaged equipment, and overheating axles. This was long required for switching and shunting, and to keep a lookout for load shifting, damage to equipment and cargo, and overheating axles. As rail cars became larger in the late 1950s and early 1960s, there was a real need for cabooses to have greater visibility for the crew. In the extended-vision or wide-vision caboose, the sides of the cupola project beyond the side of the car body. This model was introduced by the International Car Company and saw service on most U.S. railroads. The expanded cupola allowed the crew to see past the top of the taller cars that began to appear after World War II, and also increased the roominess of the cupola area.
