Atlas N Bay Window Caboose

 

The caboose has long been a staple of American railroading. Typically positioned at the rear of the train, the caboose acted as a place for the conductor and rear brakeman to monitor the train as well as bunking at the ends of long runs. Many crews would decorate the insides of their assigned caboose for a personalized atmosphere. While the most common design was the “cupola” caboose, which had a windowed extension projected above the roof of the car, it also was not immune from clearance issues. For railroads that desired a caboose that could clear low heights, tunnels, and any other obstructions, they turned to a new design called the “bay window” caboose. The carbodies were virtually similar except for a bay windowed protrusion on the sides of the car. The International Steel Bay Window caboose is based off of a popular design and features multiple bay variations, which includes a solid window, double window, and a shortened bay. This popular caboose will fit right in, acting as crew quarters for long distance runs, a place for the conductor to safely stand while your local makes a reverse shove, or even a part of excursion service.
