- In the 1980s, SP was faced with the problem of thieves breaking into automobile trains on the “Sunset Route”. To combat the thieves, SP began a program of having Special Agents ride the trains. Cabooses were a logical place for the officers to ride since their usage was reduced by the advent of the end of train device. SP converted a group of cabooses to better serve in their new role including several C-50-9 class bay window cabooses from their 1980 order. The SP police cabooses offer the modeler a chance to operate cabooses on mainline freight trains long after most cabooses were retired.
