ICC Wide-vision Cabooses by ScaleTrains

ScaleTrains announces their third S-scale release, which is the ICC wide-vision caboose. These are the same cars previously released by S-Helper Service. MTH was going to do a run of them, but in the end, did not. ScaleTrains is offering some of the same road names as what SHS had done, some with different paint schemes, and some as new road names not done before. They come with hi-rail wheels and couplers (installed) and scale wheels and couplers (included in the box). These have LED-lit interiors and LED-lit marker lights. Details are separately-applied for fine detail, and have see-through roofwalks. Discount order deadline on these is September 4, 2023 with an estimated delivery date in February 2024.

Update: pre-orders are due by Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
