I would love to see a copy of that photo of a CF caboose in Southern paint if you would be willing to share.

Since I model the A&Y, I have been looking for CF class cabs. I have one of the AMB wood kits. I put in an order for one of these to compare about a year ago....and have heard nothing. Now I know why.I'm thinking of ordering direct from PCM via their website and just getting two (who can't use an extra? :-),-HO-c3083.htmlBut I'm not sure which version to get...probably the earliest with horizontal brake wheel. Does anyone have additional information on these two specific cabin cars? Does anyone have a photo of either even in N&W paint? The closest thing I've found is a photo of a CF class car in Southern lettering at Greensboro. I'm guessing this is one of the A&Y cabs after the 1950 absorption of the A&Y into the Southern's Winston-Salem division.Even Southern Railway modelers have a reason to get one of these classic cabs! Any additional info would be most appreciated.DaveAt 11:38 PM 10/29/2007, you wrote:
At the iHobby Expo in Chicago earlier this month, Precision Craft mentioned that several announced products, including the N&W CF cabooses, were likely going to be canceled due to lack of orders. Obviously, there has been no formal cancellation announcement, so the project is probably not dead yet. But it sounds like if you want to see them made, make sure you have a reservation with your favorite hobby shop, so as to encourage PCM to go ahead with the project.I believe the PRR H32 covered hopper is also on the potential chopping block due to low reservation numbers.
