Item #CAS001-2, Late Version
The photos above represent a typical model. Details, colors, and appearance may vary slightly from unit-to-unit.
Starting with a Centralia Car Shops CE1 / CE2 Santa Fe waycar model, the car is disassembled and factory paint removed. Prototype-specific details such as antenna stand, antenna, and scratch-built jeweled marker lights are added. The car is then repainted to match either the early or late version, which differs primarily in the end platform and grab iron colors. Following painting, the caboose is lettered with custom-printed decals generated from fonts and artwork created from prototype photos.

Features include:
  • Etched metal roofwalks
  • Individually-applied wire grab irons
  • Hand-painted window framing
  • Metal wheelsets
  • Kadee couplers
  • Thin window glazing
