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.

Magnificent stations Lew.  Do the characters in red represent a 24 hour clock in the first photo?
