A quick look at how to model the freight equipment of the Canada Southern.
I've only covered the 1930-1976 era since this is the era with the most information available. I only have very basic information on the early wood equipment prior to the 1940's, so do not have enough information to base models on. A few of the older wood boxcars survived into the early 1940's.
Dry transfers for all steel Canada Southern freight cars are available - produced by CDS Lettering. CDS Lettering is retiring from business - so some sets are running in short supply and may be sold out. The good news is that there are decal versions coming in 2011 for most of the CASO freight cars. You can purchase these by visiting my business website or email me directly. Clover House and Art Griffin offer lettering sets for the early wood boxcars.
