Re: PC: Athearn-Atlas HO Scale Caboose Prototypes


The Athearn caboose is just a rehash of the very old MDC 2-window caboose. They added 2 more windows to make it sort of look like an "eastern style" caboose as owned by LV, RDG, CNJ and others. PC did buy some ex-LV cabooses but again that caboose is just a sort of a standin if you kinda squint your eyes. 

The Atlas caboose is a C&O prototype and PC never had that kind.

No need anymore to get standin PC cabooses now that accurate PC cabooses are available from Bowser, Atlas, Intermountain, and Walthers.

Just curious if any of these models had actual PC prototype caboose classes or are they just close and being lumped in with other roads  (some claim to be an N5B, but not correct):
