Cabs are out at dealers but C. Ro is still waiting on their Lionel order to arrive. That will complete my collection of all three schemes, red, yellow and blue.

Smoke is no longer listed as a feature.                             

I could never understand why smoke or interior lights ever really mattered anyway? Never seen a real lighted or smoking caboose.

"Never seen a real or smoking caboose"

Back in 1994, I worked briefly for Conrail and had the opportunity to work a local out of Lancaster, Pa which had a (lighted and heated interior) caboose attached to this job. The old head conductor preferred the comfort of a diesel and let his brakeman (me) make myself at home in his caboose. I simply felt like a king in a castle while occupying and riding in this mobile home on rails.

Ditto to all of the above, The I-12 caboose by Lionel is one of their better efforts, worth getting one or two.
