Chessie System B&O Bay Window Caboose:  This is a Walthers kit that originally came as a C&O bay window caboose.
The C&O did have a few bays but the B&O had tons.  I used Polly Scale ELO (Easy Lift Off) to remove the factory lettering except the green safety cross and black square decals.  I then applied Herald King decals for the "B&O", "C-3746", and "Chessie System".  I painted the trim orange (it was too red), the underside blue (it was black).  The end rails on B&O cabeese were either white or orange.  I painted these white.  I also painted all of the window frames silver and weathered the roof.  This is not an accurate kit, but for a stand in bay window it is OK.  The window placement is wrong for a B&O bay window caboose.  No one makes an accurate kit in plastic in HO scale.  I have retired this caboose from the roster due to its inaccuracies.
