Fostoria Rail Park Getting B&O Caboose

The Fostoria rail fan park is getting a former B&O caboose.

B&O logoThe Fostoria Rail Preservation Society purchased a 400-foot long C-3008 from an auction service for $1,500. the caboose was located in Alvada, Ohio.

The caboose was built in November 1965 by International Car Company in Kenton.

In Fostoria, it will be placed near the Iron Triangle Visiting Center and Viewing Area at the south side of the platform.

The Fostoria group is hoping that CSX will donate a 40-foot section of track on which the caboose will be placed.

Also coming to the rail park are picnic tables and benches, a concrete sidewalk, WiFi and cameras.
