California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Cotton Belt Caboose
20 units delivered
see the C-40-9 Photo Collection for more photos.
These were the second order of Wide Vision cabooses Cotton Belt received from International Car Co. Numbered 26 to 45 and delivered in 1963, these were also painted the same as the C-40-8's, ie. bright red.
In 1968 they were reclassified by SP as C-40-9 for #26 to #45.
Texts say that; By 1981 all remaining caboose had been repainted to standard SP colors. However, #32 seems to have slipped by... and #33 at Railroad Park Resort in Dunsmuir, CA. and #37 in private ownership in Temple, TX are still painted red
For available models and decals see the Cotton Belt Model Listing.
