The ultimate detail with the best Genesis features.
International Car Co. began specializing in caboose production as early as 1941. When the railroads entered the 1960s, many needed to replace their aging, in some cases home shop built, cabooses. International Car responded with a product that could be tailored to each railroads specific needs. Using quality components and modern engineering, ICC became a leading name within the industry.

Sharing ICCs commitment to quality and modern techniques, Athearn has not only recreated these iconic cars, but reinvented the quintessential features a Genesis caboose should have.

DCC lighting as a base standard with the option for sound will add a whole new dimension to operating sessions. Protect reverse moves and simulate train brakes, begins to scratch the surface to the new dimension of realism.
