The ROCK ISLAND had a style all their own,
which has endeared it to its many fans. While best known for their
famed passenger trains, the ROCK ISLAND also operated a varied fleet
of cabooses. Many car styles were rostered, from "standard"
cupola hacks to mixed cabooses for use on branchline passenger runs.
This all-new set covers the Rock's wood cars, and some of
the early steel hacks bought in the 50's.

Pt. I - Wood & Early Steel Cars (1928-1960s)

This follow-up set to the ROCK ISLAND set listed above picks
up where it leaves off, and covers the ROCK ISLAND caboose fleet
from the late 50's until their untimely demise in 1980. Many of
their later wide vision, bay window, and transfer hacks can be modeled
with this set, along with the final "THE ROCK" and "ROUTE
ROCK" blue or white schemes some of their bay window cars wore
near the end.

to serve the Pacific Northwest's enormous lumber industry, EVERGREEN
FREIGHT CAR CORPORATION's huge fleet of insulated olive-green boxcars
were a common sight across the West.
Associated with the Southern Pacific Railroad, EVERGREEN seemingly
disappeared as quickly as they arrived on the scene, with their cars
going back to parent SP in the late 70's. This set features all-new
artwork, and is just the thing for all of the new insulated boxcar
models on the market.
Whether you paint some cars from scratch, or want to renumber pre-painted
EVERGREEN models, this set is a must-have for the Western modeler.

||In addition to bringing you
the finest decals for "classic" rail subjects, we also work
hard to bring you decals for the latest prototypes out there. This
new set for MINNESOTA SOYBEAN PROCESSORS is as new as it gets, with
the prototypes being built in February of this year (2004). When a
contributor kindly provided us with photos and data on these blue-gray
cars, we knew we had to do a decal set for them right away! For modelers
keeping up with the current rail scene, these cars are sure to be
a big hit.
