Remarks & Notes 
After hiring out firing in the 60's and promoted to Engineer 1970 I didn't spend much time with caboose's. I did like to ride in them when deadheading but they probably were the most un-safe RR equipment out there. I once watched as a Conductor was thrown from one end of a caboose to the other due to severe slack action....he got up dusted himself off as if it never happened. Anyway ...on this day we've arrived Portage on train 69 and I've driven my 1953 $100 Chevy back to pick up the Con and Flagman while an eastbound extra's caboose fly's by us on the eastbound main.
