    I was sitting behind the factory not paying too much attention - nothing was scheduled to go by for a while - when this oddity rolled by...bound for the transportation museum I guess.

    Sweet!
    With all those cabeese watching out, there shouldn't be any risk of a derailment!

    Don't laugh *too* hard, I've seen it done several times on UP where they'll run a local with a caboose (to use for shoving) and still have an EOT device at the end.
