Lamoille Valley caboose

So I was checking my e-mail and looking at the usual new release e-mails I get from my supplier (Mitch at Hobbies USA) when I scrolled down on the Intermountain July Releases and saw the NE-5 cabooses. Now, I had just received the B&M Blue ones earlier this week, so I was not surprised to see new paint schemes coming, including B&M in maroon. But I was not prepared for item CCS1225, LVRC #200! I cannot believe that they are producing this caboose prepainted and assembled in LVRC yellow with green! I had already planned to custom paint an Atlas NE-style caboose and had been using the undec unit on the back of my LVRC trains. I guess that saves me one custom painting project! Now I have the undec caboose to do something with, though...

It is a sharp looking caboose Mike.Nice to see the Manufacturers coming out with equipment for lines other than Class 1's. Cheers.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the 'heads up' on the latest buggy offerings especially for the B&M. I'll have to get a couple in maroon! Your layout and blog are both coming along beautifully, as expected!
