Dwight Jones 208 pages hardcover
This book concentrates on the detailed history of probably the most famous cabooses of any railroad, the wagon-top cars of the Baltimore & Ohio. Historical coverage begins with the experimental bay-window cabooses of the 1930s and continues with detailed coverage of the production, class I-12, wagon-top cabooses of the 1940s. This volume continues the format used in the previous two volumes including heavy photo coverage, detailed rosters by individual car numbers, and lists of locations where the cabooses were assigned. This book is a must-have for both modelers as well as caboose and B&O history students. Official B&O painting and lettering information and drawings are provided as well as a history of the Keyser, West Virginia, car shops where the production wagon-top cabooses of the 1940s were built.
