Chessie System (B&O) “1982+” offers a new, previously unreleased road number for a restenciled Chessie caboose. This example wears its 1973 Chessie paint job but includes feature updates to the details matching the prototype 1982+ appearance. Our caboose features fresh yellow bay window patches from its renumbering to the 6-digit Chessie caboose series. The end stenciling on this car is different from our other releases, because Chessie restenciled the caboose with blue B&O “style” end stenciling which of course we have faithfully recreated on our model. This caboose exhibits the details of Chessie cabooses that made it to 1982: updated toilet retention tanks, Chessie “box” style markers, COTS and inspection interval lettering, and of course the FRA red end lights. Lighting features include prototypically dim interior lights, lit box markers, and red flashing end lights. This scheme is available in one accurate number: 903031.
