Part #: 150 - 20005016
The Atlas Extended-Vision Caboose is based on steel cars that brought up the markers on trains coast to coast. On these cars the cupola featured an extended-width extending past the sides of the carbody allowing crewmembers to see around the taller cars in operation in the postwar era. Each Extended-Vision Caboose features an injection-molded body, fine end railings, applied details as appropriate, accurate decoration, roller-bearing caboose trucks and AccuMate(R) magnetic knuckle couplers. Extended-Vision Cabooses were common sights on railroads from the 1950s to the 1980s and a few are still in use for switching and backup moves in 2018.
