Between 1942 and 1949, the Minneapolis & St. Louis constructed 56 25-foot, steel underframe bay window cabooses at their Marshalltown, Iowa car shops. Many cars lasted into the 1960s working for the C&NW. Kit includes intricate laser-cut bay windows, white metal smokejack, laser-cut ladders, and a unique handrail bending jig.
