Conrail (CR) “N7A Blue Repaint 1979+” is the second of our Conrail-era offerings in this run. These Conrail cabooses represent the CR repaints that were performed in 1979. These cabooses received a similar Conrail blue paint job as found in our 1977 caboose offering.  However, these cabooses include accurate red and white red ‘Scotchlight’ stripe rectangles on the ends for visibility.  Conrail removed the PC-era end marker lights when these cabooses were rehabbed, and instead substituted a single orange FRA-flasher light, mounted on end of the car (which works on our model). Yes, the 1977+ and 1979+ Conrail cabooses operated concurrently (and with PC cabooses, we might add). Finally, Conrail replaced the plain bearing trucks with 70-ton roller bearing trucks. Each has accurate and distinctive lettering detail and smokejack offerings to represent the four prototypical numbers offered.
