TOPIC: Reading bobber caboose decals O-scale

Reading bobber caboose decals O-scale 11 months 1 week ago #6080

I am modeling an MTH O-scale bobber to Reading paint scheme, would like it lettered as being in use around 1947. Unsure of what labeling outside of obvious markings such as Reading, number, built date and class type. Probably "safety first" at the steps, not sure what else.
Thanks.

The bobbers by that time were virtually painted just like the rest of the caboose feet, Unless you are going after a particular paint job that may have been floating around for the P&R or "The Reading" the Microscale O gauge Reading Caboose set should give you the decals you need. Classes were NMa & NMb, no particular sequence as I believe the A were wood framed and B meta framed and there was not a big noticeable difference body wise.

What red paint, and brown for roof and trucks,etc is good for a RDG caboose?
