Burlington Northern (BN) “Delivery 9-1970” w/Red-Green Lights represents an important group of cabooses: the first new cabooses delivered to the Burlington Northern.  This Tangent model accurately depicts the first 25 cabooses delivered in September of 1970.  Painted Cascade Green with yellow ends, these cabooses wear the first look of the then-new BN corporate image.  Check out those neat vertical railings running from the roof eave down to the end corners: Half green, half yellow, just like the real ones.  This is another new body for this Tangent system.  The center raised-sash body windows of NP and SP&S specifications are gone, replaced by rounded-corner countersunk sealed windows.  BN changed the end railing style along with the underframe details and orientation.  The Spicer axle-driven generator is still there, but the caboose features have been modernized to include a toilet retention tank and flush system.  The smokejack and bracing has changed on the roof from the NP and SP&S orders.  The running boards and end walkways are an accurate Apex design.  Inside is an accurate BN interior as delivered by ICC.  The ends feature BN’s signature Red-Green lighting and Tangent-standard interior lights.  Extra parts are included to model the daytime metal flag paddles/holders for the corner posts and cupola wind deflectors.  We are committed to accurate BN modeling.
