Bluford GB&W caboose update.

After discussing the subject with several fans of Green Bay & Western, the consensus is that we should be doing that road name on the Bluford Shops Short Roof Transfer Caboose instead of the previously announced Long Roof version; the argument being that even the GB&W cabooses with slightly more roof overhang are still much closer in appearance to our short roof car than the long roof car.
As a result, Both HO and N scale editions of the Bluford Shops Green Bay & Western transfer cabooses will be delivered with the shorter roof. No changes will be made to stock numbers or prices and pre-orders will carry over as before. The artwork on the website has been revised:

N scale:  http://www.bluford-shops.com/bluford_93_019.htm

Thanks to all who contributed their views on the matter.

Craig,

Although I wasn't directly involved in these discussions, I commend you for having them. What a positive example for all involved.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

This is great news in so many ways!

Having ordered both N and HO versions from my local 'pusher' I'm obviously delighted these will be more accurate than I originally thought.

The fact that Craig and the Bluford crew were willing to make this change, and so quickly, is amazing. Who says manufactures don't listen!

Cheers,

Kev
