PC: Real men buy brass./International cabooses

One is built to sit in a case and look pretty, the other to look nice and
run well...  Market dictates...

There are exceptions, my father has some brass steam that he bought in
1961-3 that runs flawlessly.

On a totally unrelated topic, what year did International start building
Wide Vision and Bay Window cabins?  I know PC bought some of the Bay Window
(N 12??).   Anyone know more??
