YourToyTrains-Model Trains including O Scale Cabooses- discusses our policy on historical authenticity. Even us folks at YourToyTrains learn lessons as we research our products. Note we write short historical descriptions both on the product and on the carrier. The Bachmann O Scale N5c Porthole Caboose New Haven (BAC47714) was tricky for us. We found ONLY THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD HAD N5c CABOOSES. Heck, they built them in their own shops. Could the New Haven have had such a caboose. The New Haven Historical Society tells us this could not be.
We proudly carry this fine Bachmann product, and we know on your fantasy New Haven Railroad if you want an N5c caboose, you shall have it. However, we will always give you the facts as we know them to help you buy the rolling stock you feel is appropriate. We just want to inform you. The final decision is yours!
