Product Description

This is the HO Scale Modernized C30-1 Caboose - Kit (Lasercut wood) - Southern Pacific from American Model Builders.

Product Features
  • Accurate laser-cut wood constructed caboose body kits ready for detailing. Trucks, couplers, ladders and decals not included. To further enhance these kits, Detail Associates produces an AMB Caboose Detail Kit (#229-550, sold separately) with ladders and pre-bent wire grab irons.
  • Serving as the Southern Pacific's standard caboose for decades, over 240 C-30-1 cars were built for SP, with an additional 100 for the Texas & New Orleans between 1917 and 1928. While individual variations existed over time, many were modernized in later years, receiving a full width cupola with either straight or slant sides, as well as steel underframes, power hand brakes and other upgrades.
  • This kit depicts a typical later rebuild with full-width, straight-sided cupola, and is based on car #196 as it appeared in 1961.
  • In addition to the laser-cut body, the kit includes the common features found on many cars, including steel channel end beams and power brake wheel stands. Parts are included for plain cupola end windows, as well as your choice of two different styles of crash bar glazed end windows. Other details include a laser-cut underframe, end platforms, ladders, end railing, and brake wheels, cast resin platform steps, white metal SP style smokejack, and fully illustrated instructions with information on painting and decaling the assembled model. Several fixtures are also provided to simplify making prototypical handholds and ladders.
  • Some additional items suggested to complete the model are sold separately, including Microscale decal set #460-87227, Tichy #293-3051 Bettendorf Trucks, and Kadee #380-5 couplers with draft gear boxes.
