Other than the NYC Hudson locomotive, the 19000 series cabooses with
their distinctive low cupola was an icon of the New York Central
Railroad for many of us. These cabooses lasted from the early 1900s
well into the 1960s. Many of these cabooses were inherited from
predecessor railroads but were rebuilt between 1912 and 1926 with common
features resulting in over 2000 of these so called standard wooden
model represents these standard tongue and grove siding wood sided cars. Some served until the end of
model is a craftsman kit and requires purchase of trucks and couplers
that are not included with the kit. The kits come with a set of decals so that you can number the caboose as you wish.
These kits are not of the same model
of caboose that we have commissioned to be delivered next year as ready
to run models of the tongue and grove versions of this caboose.
The MSRP for these kits is $62.95 but are offered to NYCSHS members for 20% off at $50.36
plus shipping and handling costs. Ohio residents must pay 8% Ohio Sales tax.
