Product Description

This wood caboose kit is based on the Lehigh Valley’s 25 foot Transfer Caboose as outlined in the September 1991 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman. Constructed without a cupola, these cars were common on anthracite railroads where they were used on short runs to the mines and between yards. Exhibiting a 25 foot inside length and rather short 15 foot 7 inch wheelbase, the eight wheeled, wood sheathed Transfer Cabooses were from the LV’s 95100 – 95310 car series, as originally built between 1913 and 1926 by American Car & Foundry, Standard Steel Car Company, and at the LV car shops. Many of the series were modernized following World War II and continued to serve into the 1960s. Upgrades included cast steel trucks, new safety appliances, AB brake system, and the rebuilding of the end platforms with steel steps.

Kit No. 874 represents these later modified cars and features: 100% laser-cut components with custom laser-scribed Birch plywood side and end walls, Tab & Slot carbody and Peel & Stick window, door, and trim construction; laser-cut underframe, end platforms, ladders, end railing, and brake wheels; cast resin platform steps; white metal smokejacks; fully illustrated instructions that provide information on painting and decaling the assembled model; and several fixtures to aid the modeler in creating all the handholds and ladders appropriate for the prototype. We recommend the purchase of Kadee No.5 Couplers with Gear Boxes, Kadee No. 580 Bettendorf – AAR Caboose Trucks
