Throwback Thursday - A CP International Service Van
By Peter Mumby
Cabooses on the Canadian Pacific were numbered according to their specific assigned service. If the assignment of a particular car was altered, the number was patched out and changed. So, if you are modelling a CP van, chances are that this patching should be apparent. Sometimes the whole number would be patched and changed. On other examples, only the final three digits would show signs of having been replaced. Check available photos in your chosen era to see how your model should be numbered!
