Bluford Shops N Scale: International Car Bay Window Caboose Phase 4 - B&O
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.
Baltimore & Ohio received an impressive 128 car order of phase 4 bay window cabooses from International Car in 1971. Because the paint job was still fairly new when the Chessie image was adopted two years later, much of the fleet retained this paint scheme well into the Chessie era and often until retirement.
