Product Description

The Florida East Coast Railroad took delivery of their first ten 700 - 800 series wood side door cabooses from Mount Vernon Car Company in 1923.  Another 100 cars would be received by 1927 built in the shops of both Mount Vernon and the Magor Car Company.  The cabooses featured steel frames, a 33 foot 10 inch long carbody, lever-type handbrakes, and rode on either Andrews leaf spring trucks or express-type trucks.  They were the standard cabooses for the FEC until being replaced by steel cars in the 1960s.  The 700 - 800 series remained unchanged in appearance until the late 1950s when a rebuilding program was commenced at which time the side door was eliminated and plywood sheathing was applied to the car sides.  Our kit represents the as-built 700 - 800 series cars with custom scribed sheathing, Peel & Stick windows, doors and roofing material, cast resin steps, unique laser-cut end ladders and handbrakes, and a white metal smokejack.  Additional parts needed to complete this kit include trucks, couplers, glue, paint, and decals.
