Southern Pacific caboose 1037 sits on display in the Old Poway Park as part of the Poway Midland Railroad. In the background is an old Santa Fe boxcar. This little railroad is located about 30 miles northeast of San Diego.
Have you ever watched cabooses, enjoyed their uniqueness, wondered about the men inside, or the jobs they do? Once an everyday sight on the rails, they have decreased in numbers, yet they are a very important part of railroad history.
