He made a few modifications, such as painted the roof and roof walk with Model Master flat black enamel, used 0.03" K&S brass rod for the curved side hand rails, and the short vertical rails on the ends of the main body, and painted all safety hand rails with yellow enamel. Window glazing was added. Working hi-rail couplers were added from his spare parts. International Car Co. built these bay window cabooses, C301 thru C350, for the Erie RR in 1953. The American Models prototype for this caboose was the Erie one. There is an in-depth article about how this model came to be in the June 1991 issue of the 3/16 "S"cale Railroading magazine.
