Norfolk Southern Extended Vision Caboose
Manufactured By: Lionel
Model Number: 6-29717
Road Name: NS
Notes: Since the use of the caboose is almost nonexistent on modern railroads (there are a few exceptions here and there), I'm usually not a big caboose fan. However, when I saw this one, I instantly knew it would make a perfect companion to my MTH Norfolk Southern Dash-9. This is a nicely built unit with die cast trucks, interior illumination and a smoke unit as well. Since this picture was taken, I have attached translucent paper to the windows of the cupola (upper windows) so that the interior bulb is not so obvious. It seems to me to it'd be more realistic for Lionel to frost all of the windows at the factory, but oh well. Built in 2005, and bought by me in November of 2005.
