Description

Over the years the design of the bay windows evolved and Bluford Shops is presenting four phases of these designs plus the iconic half-bay window edition. All five will be represented in this announcement. Ladders and running boards will be included on appropriate paint schemes for each version. The ready-to-run models will feature magnetically operating knuckle couplers, Fox Valley Models metal wheels, wire grab irons, window “glass”, and plenty of weight. In 1980, Frisco was merged into Burlington Northern. While this may seem an odd combination at first, Frisco actually fit nicely onto the southern frontier of the old Burlington Route and provided a northeastern outlet for BN’s old Fort Worth & Denver route. However, it was Frisco’s talented management team that the BN board of directors really coveted so buying the railroad was a means to bring them aboard. Frisco cabooses were renumbered with whatever stencils were on hand or could be picked up at the local hardware store. BN 11704 had its original road number blotted out with Frisco boxcar brown with the new road number applied in Railroad Roman. BN 11709 was patched with Frisco’s Mandarin orange with new gothic stencils applied.
