Milwaukee Road's Rib Side Cabooses
Whether you model the Milwaukee Road or you're just a fan of cabooses in general, you'll want to add this special publication to your railroad reference library. Milwaukee Road's Rib-Side Cabooses spotlights the railroad's famous rib-side caboose fleet. Debuting in 1939, these unique cabooses became a fixture on Milwaukee Road freight trains far and wide. This 40 page book - MRHA's first special publication - features dozens of black & white and color photos, line drawings of the original 1939-built caboose and a full-color center spread that illustrates both the as-delivered style and the later "mainline" style prevalent in the 1970's. Six chapters plus a special photo section, an appendix and a disposition roster provide the most complete rundown ever published on one of the most distinctive cabooses to roll on American rails.
