I have this unit that came in a collection I bought years ago. I just rediscovered it and the model number seems to conflict from info I found online in a google search. "C-101" is pictured as a C&O unit on a site I found. Any AMT guys out there with more accurate knowledge?

"C-101" is the number of the frame - all AMT cabooses would use the same frame. All of mine have the same number on the frame.
I have never seen that type of smokestack on any caboose.
i have attached a photograph of some of my AMT cabooses in my collection. To my knowledge, the smoke jack on your caboose is not original to AMT. Also, as you can see by the examples in the photographs, your cab is missing the marker lamps. Both the smoke jack and the marker lenses are commonly missing, and creative substitute items are often found in their place.
All of the frames of the cabooses shown in the photos are marked such as yours with the C-101. It was the standard frame for AMT cabs, regardless of road name. They were great cabooses for their time.
Hope this helps,
"Image Not Found" on both.
