Caboose Two for Tuesday

One a common sight, cabooses have largely been relegated to museums and working on some local trains for use as shoving platforms.

Today we pay tribute to the caboose with a pair of images, In the top photo, Huntingdon & Broad Top No. 16 is on display on the Everett tourist railroad in Everett, Pennsylvania. The image was made sometime between 1969 and 1971.

In the bottom image, Chessie System No. 902851 sits in Warwick in April 1983. This car is of Baltimore & Oho heritage.
