In someone's back yard

    My kids would LOVE that!!

  2. Thomas says:

    I read an article a while back detailing the fun things people did with cabooses when they were phased out. Apparently at one point you could buy them for a song … the major expense was moving them … but they were well- constructed and they could be used for all manner of habitations and additions if you didn’t mind the obvious space limitations.

  3. Mom says:

    An Ashland friend’s parents moved a caboose to a bluff above the Great Wicomico River on Virginia’s Northern Neck years ago. They added a boxcar later so that there were bedrooms to go along with the kitchen and living space in the caboose. It served as a wonderful getaway. Many have happy memories of that place.

  4. Chris says:

    Maybe it’s someone’s trailer in the caboose’s back yard.

    In Kalamazoo, MI (Alamo Township), a 1910 Pullman railroad car was converted to be part of a restaurant called The Club Car. One of my fave places.
