RJCC RJ Corman Bay Window Caboose 1973

Cabooses are a pretty cool piece of equipment, not used much by today's standards but they have an awesome history! Perhaps one of the most recognizable icons of American railroading, the caboose completed the train. Cabooses provide shelter for crew at the end of a train, who were long required for switching and shunting, and to keep a lookout for load shifting, damage to equipment and cargo, and overheating axles.

A popular type of caboose in later years was the bay-window. The bay window projected beyond the side of the car. The extension allowed the crew to inspect the side of the train. Bay windows were often found in service with coal hauling railroads or in unit trains where cars were loaded from the top yielding clearance issues above the roof.

Why we bought this rolling stock?

Not used as much on the M&P Fictional Railroad this rolling stock was purchased because of a trip we took to Kentucky. Seeing the RJ Corman trains around the area in Kentucky and coming across this while in a hobby store in Kentucky or maybe in St.Louis while we were out there, I honestly can't remember. It was kinda cool anyhow, so we picked it up!
