PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFORMATION Built by International Car Company in 1967 UP’s CA-9 class numbered 100 cabooses. The cars were very similar to the earlier CA-8 and later CA10 designs but had minor differences in end cages and windows. The cars originally featured square safety slogans and these were later changed to rectangular slogans. The eye-catching safety slogans made the cars distinctive the later slogan boards were removable and could be swapped from car to car meaning that certain road numbers wore several over the course of their lives.
