Chicago & Northwest Bay Window Caboos
Manufactured By: Lionel
Model Number: 6-16533
Road Name: CNW
Notes: This was one of the first new cars I got for the set back in the early 90's. For the time, it was a pretty nice car. It doesn't have die-cast trucks, but it's quite attractive nevertheless. It's a lighted caboose, and I have made a custom modification by placing thin paper over all of the windows. Not only does covering the windows give the illuminated car a warmer look, but it also provides a bit more realism since you are not able to look into the car and see the light assembly. I like to use this technique on a lot of my other lighted train accessories as well. The paper is attached with some Elmer's glue, so it can be easily removed at any time.
