LGB #42793 UNDECORATED RED CABOOSE
Model of a caboose as it was used with all freight trains in the Fifties. A caboose was a fixed feature at the end of every freight train in North America for more than a century. Today there are only a couple hundred cabooses still in use for special transfer trains, special switching work, work trains, and for trains that have to be pushed for longer periods of time.
The right add-on for the 27872 Mikado.
This model is finely detailed and has complete interior details. The doors on the caboose can be opened. The model has metal wheel sets, 2 of them with ball bearings for electrical pickup for the interior lighting and the lighted marker lights. A sheet of stickers with names and car numbers for the railroads Union Pacific, Santa Fa, Southern Pacific, Pennsylvania Railroad, and New York Central is included with this caboose so that the car can be appropriately lettered.
Length 49 cm / 19-5/16″.
