bachmann atsf wide vision caboose
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, September 3, 2003 4:55 PM
I received a bachmann atsf wide vision caboose from my brother as a gift and was wondering if bachmann is way off base with the coloring scheme and numbering scheme. After searching online I noticed that atsf only had wide vision cabooses numbering from 999538-999542 [CE-6] (the bachmann is 999628 CE-6) and none of them were equiped with a yellow top cab. Any input on this would be greatly appriciated.

Thank you,

Greg

The only model that I know of that is close to Santa Fe's wide vision Way car is Athearn. Atlas' model is paterned after a Burlington prototype I do believe. A good reference point is a book on Santa Fe Waycars by Stephen Priest published from Paired Rail. This book encompases all of Santa Fe's Waycars.
