  I won a Con Cor Goose on E-Bay last week that is painted but not numbered . It has the Wayne bus body and a freight box trailer . What would be an appropriate number for it ? Can't seem to find a pic of this combo .....Mike

For the Wayne body, Goose 3, 4, or 5 would work. They all had subtle differences but those where the three that had Wayne bodies.

For decals, go with ThinFilm. Also, this for decal/detailing reference:

The long windows were installed on 3, 4, 5, and 7 (which retained the original Pierce-Arrow front body) in 1950. In addition to those windows being installed, surplus bench seats from Denver city busses were installed in the freight compartments. The Geese operated as tourist Geese only (no mail or freight) in 1950 and 1951. But, of course, 1951 was the last year for operation for the RGS.
