Picked up 3 new True Line Trains CP cabeese today. I got 2 with block lettering and one with script. Although the script lettering is a tiny bit too modern for 1956, I like it! :)

Here's a couple shots showing the incredible detail on these models, including the marker lights.

Canada, eh?
Those look good, Val, and it's nice to see that they're not just a re-paint of the CNR ones. These might even be a good starting point for the TH&B cabooses that I was going to scratchbuild, although I'll have to check my photos.

Yeah, same as the CNR ones. I used Tamiya acrylics, applied with an airbrush, to blend the colours, although you'll need to disassemble things to get good coverage. It seemed to stand up well through the reassembly process, anyway. Here's A Link ;)

hi val---nice to see you back on track---you don't have to convince me that these cabeeses by true line trains are beauties---your's looks great and the background scenery really stands out as well---apparently there will be more cabooses for other railroads coming---if you do a google search for "modeltrains.com" then click on "true line trains" on the homepage,there is a list available with pictures as well---hope to see more of your layout---thanks,nutbar
