Caboose Back on NS Local

NS caboose No. 555603 returns to Orrville on the C27 local on December 7, 2010. It has not been used on the local for quite some time. (Photograph by Richard Jacobs)

As I was leaving the Orrville depot recently, I noticed a long missing caboose in the Norfolk Southern Orrville railroad yard. I hurried over there to see and photograph it.

The caboose used to be a regular on the C27 local, but has been missing for some time. I assume the crews did not want to ride any longer on the open end of the last car during backup moves. Riding on the porch of the crummy is a better option in the winter weather.
