30' Steel Caboose

GN Car Series
X31-X40

Model Manufacturer and description (HO Scale only)

Atlas wide-vision

Basic Modeling Notes

Building this model requires a fair amount of work, but it is cheaper than purchasing a brass model. Cars in this series can be modeled by using the Atlas wide-vision caboose along with a cupola manufactured by Moloco (part number SC-1501). Add a Plano roof walk (use the 35' covered hopper version), appropriate details, and rework the end railings and end detail. Refer to a photograph in order to determine the appropriate changes..
