Fort Worth & Denver (FWD) “Delivery 1971” w/Red-Green Lights replicates the three-car group that were part of a larger 50-car BN order from ICC-Kenton in 1971. These three cabooses were delivered in BN green and yellow paint with FW&D reporting marks and 3-digit number series. These cabooses share the 1971 BN order features, so that means another new body. Check out the roof – it now has raised diagonal panels between all of the intermediate ribs, including the panel under the smokejack. The body roof also features an accurate ICC toilet room vent along with a Motorola “fire cracker” antenna on the cupola roof. The underbody features are similar to the previous 1970 BN orders, including the Waugh cushion underframe, toilet retention tank and flush system. The electrical system has changed in 1971. Gone is the Spicer axle drive, replaced with a Safety Electrical brand axle-mounted generator. Inside this model we have installed an accurate BN/FWD interior, painted light green by ICC. The ends feature BN’s signature Red-Green lighting and “golden” interior lights, mimicking the incandescent bulbs of the real cabooses. Extra parts are included to model the daytime metal flag paddles/holders for the corner posts and cupola wind deflectors.
