The Cabo King strikes again. Some may remember that I've been intrigued by two continental manufacturers --Kibri and Cabo. Each made wonderful painted tinplate stations and had a history dating back to the late 19th century. Many of us know Kibri as a producer of HO plastic. But back in the prewar period from 1920-1940 they produced both large and small metal stations. The pictured 52-3 is an example of Kibri at its finest.
But Cabo is virtually unknown and their large stations give Kibri a run for its money. I own two large ones pictured below. (last 4 photos). Note the differences between the "balcony" and the "3 window" versions. I know of two other variations of this same station, but that is another story. Lew Schneider
Magnificent stations Lew. Do the characters in red represent a 24 hour clock in the first photo?
