Bluford N-Scale NYC Bay Window Caboose (Half Window Version)


Bluford #40020/40021 Road # 21039/21047

New York Central adopted the cigar band style logo and Century Green paint in the summer of 1959 and this paint scheme began to appear on NYC’s fleet of half-bay window cabooses at that point. Running boards and ladders were still standard equipment.

40020 New York Central green #21039.

40021 New York Central green #21047

Buford Shops' newest offering a N-scale half bay window caboose includes a New York Century Green model. The ready-to-run models feature magnetically operating knuckle couplers, Fox Valley Models metal wheels, wire grab irons, window “glass”, and plenty of weight. Road numbers 21039 and 21047 are offered. 

The model is painted to represent one of NYC's lot 919 bay window cabooses. These 100 cars were built at NYC's Despatch Shops in East Rochester New York in 1963 and numbered 21000 to 21099. These cabooses were the first NYC's cabooses delivered in Century Green and the first that were compliant with the Pooled Caboose Agreement between the Order of Railway Conductors & Brakemen, the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and the NYC. The lot 919 cabooses feature stainless steel iceboxes, flush toilets, 50-gallon water tanks, axel-driven generators for electric lighting and a railroad radio. 

The N-scale model is patterned after an International Car Company caboose that was sold to many railroads. There are some differences between the model and the prototype NYC lot 919 caboose. Some of these differences include three welded panels on either side of the bay window, where the prototype has four riveted panels on either side of the bay window. Their bottom side sill on the model has a straight sill while the prototype lot 919 has a tabbed sill. There are minor differences in the side windows and bay windows as well. 

These cabooses are an acceptable stand in model until a more accurately detailed model becomes available.

You must choose road #.
