Bluford Shops N Scale: International Car Bay Window Caboose Phase 4 - Southern Pacific
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.
Southern Pacific began ordering phase 4 bay window cabooses in 1961 and continued ordering them for about a decade. These road numbers were built by International Car in 1966. These cars differed from later Southern Pacific caboose deliveries in that they used the standard width bay windows versus the later, much narrower bay windows.
