Visually, a photograph of Western Pacific 764 matches the MRM kit,
photographs of Missouri Pacific 333 - 369 series cabooses in Michels
"Cabooses of The Missouri Pacific Lines", and the drawings and
pictures in the Car Builders Dictionaries of 1916 and 1919. Plans in
Mainline Modeler Volume I Number 4 (Sept/Oct 1980) suggest other Gould
lines acquired similar, if not identical, cabooses.
Both the Car Builders Dictionaries and the Michels book give AC&F in
1911, as the builder of record.
Can anyone provide additional information, such as build lot numbers
or details on other operators?
AC&F lot no. 5970 was an order for 25 Missouri Pacific cabooses
numbered 333-347 and 361-370. They were split due to MP 348-360
already being assigned. The order was placed on May 3, 1910, and the
cabooses were built at AC&F's plant at Jeffersonville, Indiana. Hope
