    Got me all excited about an SP caboose but it's post 1958 so it never existed in my world.

    That particular Southern paint scheme is an interesting choice.

    They are painted and lettered/numbered for the C-40-6 class. I will wait to see what the actual production model looks like - as the photo is a decent stand in. But, far from correct for an SP caboose. And, like for Jeff -- it is way to new for me.

    And -- the model looks to be closer to the rebuilt version of the C-40-6's --- the numbers should be 4300 - 4328.
    Again - it's a wait and see.

    My 2 pennies,
    Wolf

    I don't mean that in a bad way, it's just from the late 60's as a kid onward, I don't recall ever seeing it in person on trains rolling through Chattanooga TN. I've seen photos of that scheme and the only time I have ever seen it in person was at a RR museum in Spartanburg SC. Thus, to me, it is an interesting choice and would possibly be a unique future addition to my model RR empire.

    Early 50s to mid-60s actually. We are already working on a more modern version of Southern seen here: http://bluford-shops.com/bluford_93_043.htm and we wanted to do Southern cabooses from the transition era since there are so many nice Sylvan Green diesels available in N but not much in the way of matching cabooses. Plus they would go with our upcoming Southern black hoppers: http://bluford-shops.com/bluford_93_041.htm

    I would be in for at least a dozen B&O, but they would have to have the proper window arrangement, so I'll pass.
