NYC 19000 Series Caboose


Schleigh Mike
 

All this recent talk of NYC auto cars got me to wondering.  Is there an accurate HO scale model of the Central's 8-wheel caboose, suitable for service east of Buffalo?  These are the cars with the low-profiIe cupola and the heavy timber corner posts with the large radius.  I did a spot survey of many Walthers catalogs (2000-2015) and found none although I think I recall one from back there somewhere.  Did I miss something?

Thanks for any help with this----Mike Schleigh in Grove City, Penna.

Mike,

I believe Trix produced them in plastic over a decade ago. Here's an early review.

True Line Trains also offers (or will offer) a model of that NYS caboose.  See
Caboose - NYC/Rutland Standard - True Line Trains

People tend to forget that AMB has the largest selection of caboose models in HO scale:
That includes a 19000-series NYC caboose.

The AMB laserkit cabooses are exquisite.


Gloorcraft also had a Qualitycraft-like kit for these cars (wood & castings) and I think a hobby shop in Buffalo had an earlier version of this kit.


If I'm not mistaken someone offered an injection molded kit of these cars too.

As Ray said American Model Builders has a laser cut kit of the 19000. See my article in the 1st Quarter 2015 NYCentral Modeler, about building the AMB kit. 


Also the NYCSHS has an exclusive version of the AMB caboose with replacement plywood sides. 


These kits go together easily with little modeling experience needed. After building a general box that has tab and slot construction, most all other pieces are adhesive backed wood that go together simply removing the backing and sticking the piece to the kit.  I also should say that my modeling efforts that were documented in the article led to the NYCSHS plywood offering.

In addition to the various kits and r-t-r plastic models, there are several brass models of the NYC standard caboose.  LMB offered the first one many years ago.  More recent models have come from Precision Scale Company and Overland Models.   The short standard cabooses have been done in brass too – these are former LS&MS cabooses with two windows on each side – models from PSC and Overland.  Then there are the “Pacemaker” cabooses that were built in East Buffalo on boxcar frames, five of which were sheathed with plywood and painted red and grey for the Pacemaker freight train.  These East Buffalo cars are a bit longer than the standard cabooses and have steel underframes – no truss rods.  NJI-CB and Overland imported models of these cars.  Good articles on NYC cabooses were published many years ago in the NYCSHS Central Headlight.  I can provide road numbers, lot numbers, etc., for most NYC cabooses, including those built for the P&LE, T&OC, Big 4 and Michigan Central.  NYC also had two different series of steel bay-window cabooses, the earliest of which were delivered in 1949 and ran behind steam for seven or eight years.  Hope this helps a bit.  Hugh T Guillaume

Yes, we're getting back on track and can "unofficially" state that we are hoping to ship these by later this year, possibly early next year. We're moving forward aggressively with this model in particular as the project has been stalled for a number of reasons. Noel and the NYCSHS have been a crucial part of this project to make sure we get it right!

Official announcements will continue to follow, but only when we're comfortable that the factory will deliver. There is still plenty of time to place orders, and we hope to have samples to bring to shows this summer.
