Remarks & Notes 
A typical Milwaukee Road rib side caboose built at the West Milwaukee Shops in the 1940's and rebuilt in the 1960's sits near the Portage Freight House...I lived on one in the 60's forced out of Milwaukee the junior Fireman on the board to work out at Watertown,WI.....we'd work 16 hours switching the mainline and the branch and tie up on the coach track 2 next to the Cannonball........I was to young to drink 21 in Watertown but I didn't drink anyway YET! Their were four very comfortable bunks in the caboose and all of us three from Portage and me from Milwaukee would crash there.....There was a bunk house across from the CNW/MILW diamond but it was not fit for man nor beast! We all took turns with food preparation my turn was Thursdays.....I would make my famous "caboose stew."....a can of everything and a pound of meat!
