Bluford Shops N Scale Burlington Northern #11997 Bay Caboose 44070
Over the years the design of the bay windows evolved and Bluford Shops is presenting four phases of these designs plus the iconic half-bay window edition. Three of those five will be represented in this announcement. Ladders and running boards will be included on appropriate paint schemes for each version. The ready-to-run models will feature magnetically operating knuckle couplers, Fox Valley Models metal wheels, wire grab irons, window “glass”, and plenty of weight.
Burlington Northern received a group of phase IV cars from International Car in 1977. From the outset, these cars were assigned to pool service and could be seen in operation on connecting lines as well as on the BN. Burlington Northern would inherit more bay window cabooses with their 1980 acquisition of Frisco.
