To date, I have not encountered an example of the Pemco Amtrak Caboose
and can not comment on its design and have no image of it to offer.
An interesting scheme for a BN caboose adorns this Pemco example.
The yellow Burlington Northern Caboose is the catalog image example used by Pemco and does not reflect the actual production
run models. Examples viewed for this Pemco caboose are typical BN colors of green with black roof. The production
run model also carries roadnumber 151 and not 9790 as the catalog example.
This red with black roof Pemco-made Canadian National Caboose was part
of the Aurora offerings. The CN roadname is not among the list of caboose offerings found in the Pemco catalog.
Interestingly, my example of the Pemco Santa Fe Caboose does also include
the tinted window material as seen in the picture above. Other examples of the Pemco Caboose I've obtained do not feature
window material. Perhaps Santa Fe's union struck a deal for window material from Pemco that the other roads didn't
Carrying Union Pacific's O.S.L.-Oregon Short Line reporting marks is this
uncataloged Pemco caboose offering.
The Pemco streamlined cupola 36ft. Caboose shares many design elements with
the famous Mantua-Tyco caboose tooling. Quite likely the Tyco shell served as Pemco's inspiration, as both shells are
nearly identical. Pemco examples do however include the company's name and Hong Kong origin marks raised on the model's
underframe. The origin mark, seen below, is very similar to that found on the bottom of the AHM streamline cupola Caboose
model. See my AHM site for further information.
The above AHM Conrail Caboose shares what appears to be the same tooling
used for the Pemco release. You may click on the image of the AHM Conrail example and you'll be taken to my AHM
site and further information.
