Last week I needed to order a replacement lighting circuit board for one of my American Models cabooses. Thinking it would be a shame to just have a board sent I looked to see what else I might want. On the theory that one can never have too many cabooses I bought two more. A red PRR and the green NYC. I already have the red NYC, its the one that needs the new lighting board.

Thanks guys. As if this is not enough I have three more cabooses plus some box cars and hoppers on order from the MTH 2020 (and final) catalog. Might see these late this year or early next year.

Nice cabooses Tom. I bought a Lionel Union Pacific caboose this week. It is brand new in box. I might have paid too much. 4.99 plus 8 or 9 shippng. 4.99 was opening bid and no one else bid on it. It will work for one of my UP northerns. Red or yellow would have been better ,but it is silver with black roof. 6-48703.

How can $5 be too much for a NIB caboose? I have the yellow with red roof UP caboose, looks nice but it cost $49.95 plus shipping, new from American Models.

I was kidding about paying too much. Seller probably not happy. Someone made a
Chicago & Northwestern green and yellow caboose. Not sure if it is Lionel or someone
else. I have seen a few of them. Never goes for under 50.00. I would like one but maybe too
nice for me. I have a Lionel PRR caboose. Its nice but not as nice as your new one.

American Models makes a yellow with green roof C&NW same style as the two I posted above, $44.95. MTH has a spectacular one in their 2020 catalog for $69.95.
Lionel made an AF C&NW bay window caboose in 2018, #44111. It looks really nice, Catalog price was $69.99. Yellow with green roof.

I am sure they are nice. Its just too much for a car for me. Many of the Lionel
cars drop in price after a few years old. But some don't. For some reason
C&NW cars hold their value.
