      Hmmm. I can't think of where this is? What number?

      X700 or something. I bagged it somewhere around Williston, ND.

      Well, looks like you'll have to go back there! :D Find out more. I don't recall it on the preserved GN caboose list. For either ND, or MT. Hmmmm....

      X-708. Any ideas who removed the cupola? GN? Or someone else?

      No idea... Without my Hickcox book handy (GN Color Guide to F/P Equip), I have no caboose data available.

      The Hickcox book has no data on any X700-X724 series cabooses that lost their cupolas. Must have been a BN-era modification, or by the current owner.

      There was, may still be, a GN caboose in the museum at Snoqualmie, WA. It also had a removed cupola. I do not recall a story behind how that happened. Might have some info around here. But am not up to tearing the house apart, to locate which box... :eek:

      Actually, I ended up looking for some other paperwork much of the day... No. I did not find that either. :(
