Atlas O Trainman line Chesapeake & Ohio caboose
A steel cupola caboose based on a Chesapeake & Ohio prototype is the latest addition to the Atlas O Trainman line. The injection-molded plastic model features see-through plastic running boards, interior lighting, and die-cast metal trucks and couplers.

Prototype history.
The Chesapeake & Ohio ordered 150 cabooses from Amer-ican Car & Foundry in 1949. The cars, built in July and August, were divided between the railroad’s Chesapeake and Pere Marquette (PM) districts. Ches-apeake District class C-20 cabooses were numbered 90200 through 90299, and PM District class C-21 cars were numbered 90300-90349. The key exterior spotting difference between the two groups was the position of the end ladders. They were to the right of the coupler on Chesapeake District cabooses and to the left on PM District cars. Placement and types of interior accommodations also varied slightly between the two groups of cabooses.
