CONVERTED CABOOSE  (Rt 66 Galena KS)

CONVERTED CABOOSE (Rt 66 Galena KS)

This caboose has found a permanent home at a mobile home park. Others have been donated to parks or museums...or used for storage.

Cabooses have been obsolete for decades. The crewhouse-at-the-end-of-the-train has been replaced by an EOTD or "End of Train Device" which is sometimes called a FRED or "Flashing Rear-End Device." It's a box of electronics that sends information to the lead locomotive.
