Remarks & Notes 
Loose Caboose
No longer wearing its “Linking NORTH and SOUTH” herald, RF&P caboose 923 (built 12/1970 by Southern Iron & Equipment) had wandered off home rails with the Ringling Brothers Red Unit circus train, when photographed on one of the South Eutaw Street leads in Baltimore on 03/21/1987.

In the background are the Maryland Baking Company/Maryland Cup Company (then owned by Fort Howard Paper) buildings, with the "SWEETHEART PAPER CUPS" signage. This site is now occupied by M&T Bank Stadium.

The caboose was ultimately acquired and restored by the Chesapeake Railway Association, and, although now sporting a red paint scheme, is in service on the Walkersville Southern Railroad as CHRX 923.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
