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. Family Lines was not a railroad company. There was no Family Lines merger. Instead it was a joint marketing brand used by 6 railroads with various levels of interlocking ownership. Seaboard Coast Line owned a controlling interest in Louisville & Nashville. SCL predecessor Atlantic Coast Line and L&N jointly leased the Carolina Clinchfield & Ohio and established the Clinchfield Railroad to operate it. Likewise, ACL and L&N had formed the Georgia Railroad to operate the leased Georgia Railroad & Banking Company. Georgia had a controlling interest in the Atlanta & West Point and the Western Railway of Alabama. In 1974, the 6 companies adopted the Family Lines image which began to appear on freight cars that year (locomotives followed 3 years later.) Equipment painted for Family Lines wore the reporting marks of the owning railroad. In this case, these cabooses belonged to Louisville & Nashville. Note the red and yellow stripes wrap around one end of the caboose and are different lengths on each side. This road name will be available in 2 road numbers.
