Based on prototypes that were built during the 1960s, these cabooses were popular on railroads from coast-coast.

With the advancement of the End-of-Train device, cabooses slowly began to fall out of favor. However, in the early 2000’s, “shoving platforms” began to appear as a place to safely house a crew when a reverse move was required. Instead of riding on the side of a freight car, the crew member now has a safe place to stand, while guiding the rear of a reverse move. Atlas’ shoving platform cabooses will feature blanked out windows (Where appropriate).

• Thin endrails
• Window glazing
• Separate brake cylinder
• Open smoke stack
• Triple valve and air reservoir
• Roller-bearing caboose trucks
• Roofwalk where appropriate
• Accurate painting and lettering
