Remarks & Notes 
GN 562 in Big Sky Blue handle home built caboose X-1 and a classic GN caboose along with a string of ore jennies at Allouez Yard 6 months after the BN merger. The jennies include a somewhat rare jade green one, and the next track over, NP ore cars reside. Although this is post merger, the Duluth-Superior railroads had a common practice of interchanging ore cars with each other depending on the iron ore mix needed by the steel mills, so seeing NP cars would not necessarily be a sign of the recent merger. It is interesting to note roller bearing trucks on the NP cars.

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.
