Rockin Craig! No complaints. You might consider some new numbers of previous runs... Some of us missed the boat first time on certain schemes. Just sayin.

Cool I'll grab a Dixieland for the Wife.. and may grab an NYC just cause it's cool...

Any chance we'll see the Conrail New England/Buffalo Division Safety Caboose?

Those "Conrail" cars are indeed cool and have been given the CRHS's seal of approval.

I sure wouldn't mind seeing that L&N bay window caboose come to HO scale.

Craig, I love the cabooses.  Any chance you'll be doing a new body style soon - something other than hoppers or bay window cabeese?
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.

Yeah, a smart move by Bluford (cabooses). I loved the 86' Hi-Cubes too! How about some 60' hi-cubes? (to replace the vertically challenged MTL models).

Looks like my 1957 Southern fleet will be getting some additions. I’m really excited for the NW scheme bay windows! I know they were banned from some lines in coal county due to clearance issues, but they weren’t banned for all of them They should look great on the tail end of a loaded coal train.

Ed's Law.  Take a look at the notes by Bluford Shops on the website about those Red Conrail cabooses.  It says that NS inherited those cabooses from Conrail and painted them red but lettered them Conrail, which were used for a while on the Conrail Shared Assets.
