Lettering for Southern Pacific’s, T&NO and SPdeM Type C-30 caboose
The S.P. built most of their own cabooses, primarily at Sacramento and Los Angeles shops, the quantiy for the C-30-1 class, adopted in 1916, eventually
reaching over 600. Some of these remained in service for 90 years. Almost all kept their original numbers. To fully understand this complex subject one needs
to consult Tony Thompson’s very comprehensive S.P. Freight Cars, Volume 2, Cabooses, pgs 40-168. This decal set is designed to allow the modeler to letter
almost any variation of caboose lettering during this period. Cars were painted SP’s freight car red with tared roofs.
