Good afternoon,

Whatever happened to O-Line?  I have an O-Line PRR N5c cabin somewhere in storage, but here are some images I took a while back comparing it to a K-Line N5c.  The O-Line has the brown roof with #477927.  Definitely looks like the same tooling used for both.

@CAPPilot,

Ron,

Here’s a closer comparison with your PRR N5C radiophone cabooses. The model is PRR #477926 with radiophone and antenna by MTH (20-91286, 2009, MSRP $59.95).

O-Line even used the same black and yellow boxes.

My first view on this Tail-End-Tuesday, May 21st, 2024 looks at the rear of the cab of New Haven Railroad Alco S-2 diesel switcher 0615 – an MTH Premier model (20-20587-1) delivered in 2016. At the tail-end of the train is New Haven caboose C-681 – an Atlas O model (6671) delivered in 2003. The entire train, including four New Haven steel boxcars with the McGinnis block NH logo, is also shown in the video taken on the O-36 (inner) loop of my 12’-by-8’ model railroad.

K-Line caboose, originally C&O. It was NIB at our last train show but nobody wanted it, so I took it home and repainted it. Since it already had R-Y-R markers, I made it an A.T.&S.F. waycar (Santa Fe purist will point out the markers should be R-Y-Y).  The grain-o-wheat bulbs were replaced with 3mm. warm white bulbs from Evan Designs.

Hornby Fibre Wagon in Train rear view edit 1

Well something a little different today.  A Hornby cattle / livestock train moves down the line and bringing up the rear is the hay wagon to provide feed for the critters' in route.  The train will have to stop periodically to allow the cattle drovers to feed and water the animals and the "fiber" wagon provides a source of feed.



Best Wishes

Here’s a shot of Jersey Central “northeastern” steel caboose #91524 bringing up the tail end of a mixed freight over Penobscot Mountain.  This is a MTH Premier model that I custom painted, lettered, detailed and weathered several years ago.  She’s well worn but still providing reliable service to the CNJ and her crew.
