Bluford Shops N Scale: International Car Bay Window Caboose Phase 1 - Southern
Over the years the design of the bay windows evolved and Bluford Shops is presenting four phases of these designs plus the iconic half-bay window edition. All five will be represented in this announcement. Ladders and running boards will be included on appropriate paint schemes for each version. The ready-to-run models will feature magnetically operating knuckle couplers, Fox Valley Models metal wheels, wire grab irons, window “glass”, and plenty of weight.
When it came to all-steel bay window cabooses, Southern Railway had the Erie beat by more than a decade. Their first group of 48 phase 1 cars began rolling off the production line in 1941! Many more followed over the next four decades. This run represents how these cars were painted through the steam to diesel transition era.
