Specific Item Information: Coal was often used in the heater of a caboose. This N scale coal bunker was a common site along the caboose track. Typically a gondola filled with coal was spotted next to the bunker. The coal was shoveled in using the “armstrong” method. The door on the side of the bunker is where the trainmen could go in to fill up a coal bucket for the fuel needed for the next freight run.

Footprint is 1 3/8″ x 3/4″.

Road Name History:
Railroad structures include but are not limited to stations, depots, yard offices, interlocking towers and tanks. A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

It generally consists of at least one track-side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "stops" or, in some parts of the world, as "halts" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses, trams or other rapid transit systems.
