The NP's 1200 series of 24' cabooses were built as early as 1907, yet they lasted for many years. 145 of the cars were renumbered into the 1200 series in 1942 and rebuilt again in the 1950s with modern safety appliances. This kit represents this post-War appearance. Many of these cars survived up to the BN merger. The kit includes all the end railings and ladders, two brakewheels, and a jig for bending your own grab irons; as well as both widths of ladder landings on the roof.
