HO Scale......Atlas RS-3 Locomotive. The model is available with two road numbers, #33 and #38. I believe the model itself is a Phase I and the real Interstate units were Phase 3's. The model is missing the dynamic brake vent on the top of the short hood. Overall the model is a great edition to the model railroad world. I am glad to see Atlas offer this paint scheme. February 2008 to the present.

It doesn't matter which kit you buy, the kit has parts for both cabs. The kits are $29.99.
Bethlehem Car Works has released a new kit in HO scale. It is a Interstate caboose. The kit will build number 20 and 21 cabs. These are the two cabooses that were purchased from Lackawanna. The kit has 4 windows on each side, so it is good for the June 1954 to May 1968. These cabs were rebuild in 1968 to 2 windows and different siding. The price for the kit is $65.00. The cab is listed under the Sparrow's point product line.
