Remarks & Notes 
Bob Pace of Thistle, Utah purchased D&RGW caboose 01120 from the Rio Grande in 1960. It was built at D&RGW's Burnham Shops in Denver in 1924. The caboose became a local landmark along Hwy. 6 until 1983 when a mudslide and flood caused it to float away, becoming mired in silt and lying on its side a few miles upstream.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
