Refurbished Chicago Central Caboose
In October of 2003, this former Chicago Central & Pacific #199036 was brought to the museum from Waterloo, Iowa. After being repaired and repainted in the scheme of the Rock Island Line, this wide vision caboose now wears road number 52554...the ZIP code for Eldon, IA. Restoration work on the interior of the caboose was completed in 2007, and now visitors are able to enjoy an inside view of typical caboose comforts of the past.
We look forward to your enjoying the fruits of our efforts!
