Tangent Scale Models 60023-01 ICC B&O I-18 Caboose Dark Blue Chessie Safety C-3028
Chessie System (B&O) “Dark Blue Chessie Safety 1973+” delivers an all-new accurate Chessie Safety Caboose. The B&O DuBois Shops painted C-3028 into this sharp looking dark blue and silver combination in late 1973. Those black trucks really stand out! The caboose reminded employees with its “SAFE TODAY – HERE TOMORROW” slogan. Chessie Safety cabooses ran system-wide and were even part of an employee spotting contest in 1974, where the winner who spotted the most cabooses won a clock radio! 1973 era-appropriate underframe details include the toilet dump pipe and battery box. Lighting features on this model include prototypically dim interior lights as well as lit Pyle lanterns. This NEW scheme is available in one prototypically accurate number.
