The Milwaukee Road shops built 315 of these "rib-sided" design cabooses between 1939 and 1951. Based on the paint scheme, rhomboid logo and drop-center trucks, this is one of the later models. Speaking of models, Wm. K. Walthers offers an HO caboose that bears this number, although the model has the traditional Milwaukee Road Orange color.
