I found this relic at a site I was inspecting for work in Preston, Idaho on a cold and bitter December day in 2006. Being that it is a wood-sided caboose, it really makes this old railroad car quite a rarity; wood-sided cabooses stopped being made and used in service here in the United States in the early part of the 20th century. There wasn't a soul any wheres to be seen, so I was able to actually go inside, climb up into the cupola and sit in the built-in bench seat. It made my head spin ~ what a treat and rare find! I hope somebody comes along someday and discovers this caboose as well, then sets to work to save it from further demise!
