Remarks & Notes 
Pushers of the human kind attempt to roll a caboose downgrade through the yard at Bluefield on a miserably cold day in early 1985. They eventually succeeded, and the cab dropped down to a coupling on the rear of an eastbound coal train ready to depart for Roanoke. For sure, this was a very different kind of yard switcher.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

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.

Cabooses have always been one of my favorite pieces of railroad equipment. This is just a collection of some of the caboose shots on the site.
