WHY RESERVE YOUR BRASS MODELS FROM THE CABOOSE?

The Caboose can make the statement that over the years we reserved
more models from importers than most other dealers. Including many Caboose exclusive projects.

1. We always deliver and have very competitive pricing
2. In most cases we do not require a deposit.
3. We have a lay-a-way policy
4. We work with our customers as best we can

WHY MUST YOU RESERVE FUTURE MODELS?

1. Currently importers are producing enough models to cover their reservations and in many cases no extra models are produced.
2. In some cases only 10 to 15 models of a certain type are being produced.
3. In other cases they may produce more than 100 models but they are quickly reserved. A good example was the Division Point B&M P-4’s.

CALL THE CABOOSE. We may be able to help you make the correct decision regarding future models.
