Burlington Northern (BN) “WFE Rebuild 2016+ Era” w/FRA Red Lights illustrates an example of the WFE rebuild program, with additional updates to bring it up to “today” on the BNSF.   This caboose is another veteran of the 1972-built group of ICC cabooses that went through the 1990 BN Western Fruit Express rebuild program.  This caboose has survived to at least 2016, and features additional lettering for the era, specifically yellow reflective conspicuity stripes.  Cabooses are still used in the modern era in local service for crews where back-up moves require safety and protection.  This model features all of the 1972 BN ICC features, including accurate roof and underframe details placement.  This modernized caboose has lost its running board, but the tell-tale roof brackets remain.  Notice the fine holes in the top of each roof bracket where the bolts use to be!  The side windows have also been plated over.  For lighting, this replica features red FRA lights on each end, along with interior lights that can be seen from the remaining cupola and end windows. It is always exciting to execute modern-era caboose survivors.
