    It was a sad day when railroads stopped using the caboose.

    Robin,

    Nice that somebody had the right pull to get the caboose painted the day it was taken off the rails!!

    The CN sign is intriguing. Can you tell me anything about it? It looks like an afterthought when someone couldn't get the right size "Noodle" for the rear. Also, why did they remove the floods, exposing the sockets to the elements?

    George.

    Once they are in the hands of those who run the museum where this caboose is located, anything can happen. I guess they just want it to look nice.
