Steve Neubaum's Album: Obscure Prototypes of Models

In the earlier days of model railroading, sometimes great liberties were taken with prototypical accuracy, some products were composites of various prototypes, and some were complete fantasy. Sometimes, however, even the oddball products did, in fact, have a prototype, and sometimes even "Toy" train makers got their products right. That is what this album is dedicated to.

Mantua/Tyco Bobber Caboose
The old Mantua/Tyco car is a good stand in for a B&O design too, but it is clearly based on a Reading design, as the B&O car, the next closest design, had four pane windows instead of one pane as the model and prototype have.
