Adding to there growing range of containers. On the heals of the 20ft and soon to be released 30ft Containers Buzz Models will be releasing the 10ft Caboose. As you can see it will be a multi piece kit and will be out of different materials to be you a highly detailed kit.
They stem from the BR days and was designed and introduced as guards refused to travel in the back cab of locos. BR wouldn't supply a brake van for container trains. So to combat it they made this and it was basically a container with a few windows and a chair and desk. The ride was unsprung and terrible so it got pulled rather quick. The real thing resides in the NRM to this day
Price is to be confirmed.
