The Atlas Trainman C&O-Style Steel Center-Cupola Caboose is based on the first all-steel cabooses built for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. They were produced in 1937 by the Magor Car Corporation in Clifton, N.J. Magor, along with St. Louis Car Company and ACF, ultimately built a total of 350 cabooses for the C&O using a similar design. The last were produced in 1949. Through subsequent rebuilding and modernization, many remained in service through the end of regular caboose usage in the 1980s. Cabooses of a similar design were also built for Pere Marquette, Missouri Pacific and Chicago & Eastern Illinois and this car has the general looks of cars used by many railroads.
Features of this caboose include true scale dimensions with accurate details, weighted detailed underframe, free rolling metal wheels, Accumate(R) couplers, clear window inserts and separately applied side railings. The C&O-Style Steel Center-Cupola Caboose will look great bringing up the markers on your late steam and diesel-era freights.
