HO Bachmann UP Transfer Caboose

$53.00 $83.00


Designed for the Missouri Pacific™ in the late 1970s, the Short Body Bay Window Caboose was one of the very last caboose styles to be built for class-one operation. With End-of-Train Devices fast replacing cabooses on the rear of road trains, the Short Body Bay Window Caboose was constructed with a design that could easily be adapted for shoving or “transfer” movements, featuring a longer platform on each end of the body for external riding. The basic design was adopted by several other railroads, including the Louisville & Nashville® (ultimately continuing in service under CSX® ownership) and Southern Pacific™, while many of the original MoPac cars continued in operation long after the Missouri Pacific™ merged into the Union Pacific® system. The Bachmann Short Body Bay Window “Transfer” Caboose arrives with newly tooled components, accurate details, blackened metal wheels, and E-Z Mate® knuckle couplers.
