Spokane Portland & Seattle (SP&S) “Delivery 1969” w/Red Cupola Lights offers up the final SP&S caboose order.  Delivered in July of 1969 from ICC, these six prototypes wore classic SP&S red paint.  The prototypes have unpainted galvanized roofs, with red overspray.  Tangent has carefully duplicated all of these colors including the red overspray on our model.  The yellow handrails, grab irons and top ladder handholds really stand out against the red body color.  These SP&S cabooses were delivered with Morton running boards and end walkways, and we have done the same on the models.  The SP&S lettering has been carefully replicated on the caboose, including “The Northwest’s Own Railway” script.  All of the as-delivered data is present, from the ACI label down to the underframe ICC builder stencil.  Underneath, these models are fitted with a Waugh cushion underframe, Spicer axle-drive generator, battery storage box and toilet dump pipe.  At first glance, you may think that we just painted the Tangent NP caboose in SP&S red.  But you know the SP&S deserves better.  If you look closely, you will notice all of the changes — Yes, we tooled up an SP&S-specific body and cupola.  And that includes little things like the SP&S-specific shorter smokejack, underframe battery box and alternate electrical conduit/plug location.  This replica has a fully outfitted and painted interior, from the Vapor “Caban” Heater and lockers to the high-back chairs and bunks.  For lighting, this Tangent SP&S model is equipped with prototypical round, red lights on the cupola ends and “golden” interior lights, mimicking the incandescent bulbs of the real cabooses.  Extra parts are included to model the original end screen doors (quickly removed by SP&S), BN era metal flag paddles, and cupola wind deflectors.
