~ THE D&RGW "PEAKED ROOF" LONG CABEESE ! ~

PLEASE NOTE:
THIS PAGE MUST LOAD COMPLETELY FOR SLIDE SHOWS TO DISPLAY CORRECTLY.




   Over three years in the making, these models are the epitome of FineScale Modeling...
And they are Era Specific too ! Students of the D&RGW's "Long" Cabeese will be quick to point out that all of the Peaked Roof cabooses were built with "Single Window" Cupolas... (As viewed from the side, of course...) Most remain as such until today... But others were rebuilt in the thirties to have "Double Window" cupolas....
   So as you scroll down you will see both represented, correctly lettered to fit the era being modeled...
   Below are a couple of close-up views that were a true test of Jimmy's iPhone... ( And its operator, heh, heh, heh... ) If you are into detail, like the ad says, you're going to like what you see ! We guarantee it !

The level of SCALE SIZED DETAIL to be seen on these models is simply amazing. Click any of the photos on this page for an enlarged view or two.

  Each of these models is a faithful reproduction of its prototype, only in miniature...
Each is equipped with REAL RUBBER AIR HOSES, GENUINE KADEE® #156 Couplers, and COINED, NICKEL PLATED BRASS Wheelsets, and a COMPLETE INTERIOR, including the 'kitchen sink'...

  They are designed to negotiate a 26" minimum radius curve, which they do here just fine on our in-shop test layout...
  (Like anything else, the larger the radius, the better they "look"... 'Just sayin'...)

  Our long time HK friend, K.K. and his extremely talented crew produced 500 of these models for us, total... So if you think that one is in YOUR future, 'best you act quickly so as not to be disappointed...
