The Red Caboose 42' C&NW flats, how accurate are these? For the C&NW articulated sets?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

CNW or CGW?

I haven't seen a pic of the CNW AFs but at a length of 95', the red caboose cars might be a good fit.

The CGW cars were much longer at 110'.

The only pic I have seen is in one of the Morning Sun color guides (which I don't have access to right now) and I remember the lettering being in the deep yellow, not the white on the Red Caboose model. Which is why I am asking... are the RC models, as is (separate cars), prototypical or should I plan on adding a bridge plate to a set and repainting them?

Okay, that's easier.

That paint isn't close to correct regardless of color (at least not on the ones I have).

I believe the CNW went to the yellow letters over BCR in the 60's.  The RC flats are lettered as delivered which includes having RY. as part of the lettering.

One other thing with articulated flats, from what I've seen, they are usually in a new number series from the original cars.

Clicking the link to this thread and hoping for CGW info is almost as dissappointing as clicking on the CGW link in Jason's signature and hoping for new CGW info.   :trollface: :ashat: :D

I'm shooting for annual updates.
