Hi All
is there an HO stream era N&W caboose available?

From: nw-modeling-list at nwhs.org

To coin a phrase, When it rains, it pours. This March has certainly
favored N&W steam-era N-Scale modelers.

AT LAST, N&W's CF caboose (wood side) is available,
coming out as a laser-cut kit, American Model Builders' item AMB
552. To view, go to Brooklyn Locomotive Works (www.buynscale.com).
Under "new update log", click Laser Kit, 26 March.

On the same screen scroll down to 8 March, announcing Broadway
Limited's N&W H2a 3-bay hopper, a long-awaited
production, available in both 17" and 24" "N&W" car sides
lettering (the latter for stenciling when cars were shopped / built
21 October 1952 through 1956.)

The CF is sold as a single item, whereas the H2a is available in
6-packs only.

I do not have the models in hand, but photos in the above references
appear to show accurate work.

To my knowledge, these are the first commercially-produced models of
the two cars.

If the Modeling Committee was involved in the birthing of these
models, take a bow!
