Hey Y'all;
Was playing in Google looking for images of 4 wheel "Bobber" cabooses and this came up.
There's gotta be a story to having that headlight on that caboose.
Equipment & Rolling Stock Details - MR Caboose 02

And I see now there appears to be a 2 lens over-under lantern between windows on side of cupola,
similar question, what's that about?

Makes you wonder whether there was a stretch of line where the couldn't turn the loco - maybe the loco pushed the caboose immediately ahead.

Just a guess :worried:

That's a philosophy I can get behind. :smilecat:
Interesting apparently solid disk drivers on the thing.

I may never get the three-hundred ideas, to date, which that philosophy has currently generated built and done, but I can certainly support the concept; after all, the caboose which began this thing falls under it.
And so does that handsome straight-boilered 4-6-0 pushing it.
