This model came in two numbers, but for two different eras. This model has the as-built 15' wheel base. This one is for 1941-1945. These were imported from Korea (manufactured by Green Art Brass Model), and came ready-to-run, painted, and lettered with sprung trucks. Only Kadee S #802 or 808 couplers and maker lamps needed to be added. The B&O built six of this class in 1936 to 1940.

This wagon-top, bay-window caboose was built in 1939 as a class I-5B in the Cumberland shops but later the truck centers were lengthened to 19' from the original 15' and re-classed.

This model was imported from Korea, and comes with sprung trucks. The models came unpainted. The prototype had been refitted for use in caboose pool service in the 1960s by adding electric generation and batteries. Also toilets and a retention tank were added. Photo #2 shows Bill's model of the Chessie version of the I-12. It was painted by the late Charlie Carangie, and Bill added the rock guards details.

A small number of these models were available factory-painted and lettered with either freight-car brown or tuscan red. The majority were sold unpainted. Ninety models were made with the PRR antenna and ten models without. The main photo shows Bill Lane's model which required many hours to super-detail.
