Dave: The N&W used Armspear caboose markers, which are rarely seen as
detail parts- Adlakes are the common shape that are produced. In later
years basically 1935-ish and later, the caboose markers were red to the
rear, and yellow to the side and pointing ahead.

List Members,

I have a couple of HO AMB CF cabeese that are in need end marker
lamps. I've look at various publications and can't get a good idea as
the colors of the lenses and the positions that each would have. Will
someone please let me know what colors are needed (green, red, yellow?)
how these would be oriented in the lamp? Also any suggestions as to a
HO source for model lamps is appreciated. This may have been addressed
the past. If so I must have missed it.

Thanks in advance for your input,

P.S. I wish I could have attended this year's Convention. By the
made on the list it sounded great. May be next year :)
