Yesterday"s NS 211 splits the eastbound signals at Wyo JCT on its way to Inman Yard in Atlanta.
Just a random photo from my collection.
The only time I saw one of these unique cars was many moons ago when a freight was leaving El Paso up the east bank of the Rio Grande. No clue where north of El Paso I was, but waiting at a rural-ish crossing, I was awed to see this cabin design. None of the eastern roads had any as lovely as this. Thanks

The only caboose I ever saw during my times of poking around Tacoma Municipal Belt Line. I would be shocked if she was not of former Northern Pacific RY heritage!
Tacoma Rail did this Heritage caboose from one of the old Chehalis Western caboose's.
And there's another that they painted up in they're modern colors, that they're using for a public office in front of the shops now too.
Well, since this thread has gotten so crummy , I'll fit right in.

Climbing aboard the caboose run. This is from Norman, Oklahoma on November 30, 2007 when it was part of Artrain USA’s Artist’s Studio where Allesee Fellows and local volunteer artists demonstrated their artistic abilities for visitors. It started life as a Detroit Toledo and Ironton caboose that was built in 1971. It was acquired by Artrain USA in 1994 from the Grand Trunk Railroad. It was serving as staff administrative and living space. They planned to retire it later and be replace it with ARTX105, a stainless steel “observation car” to offer increased administrative and staff space, in addition to an area for private receptions. The whole Artrain was eventually replaced by highway vehicles.
Former RDG caboose at New Hope, PA, built by the road in 1937. Taken about 1976.
MILW caboose somewhere in northern IL, taken 1975 or 1976. Sure wish I'd have shot color back then, but I was a teen with a darkroom in the basement, so b&w was it.
Because it was below zero all day in the Magic City, we have a snow shot. A Soo caboose is a shoving platform for this day's CP H12 transfer job as it passes the historic 1912 Soo depot. Light flurries fall as the crewman protects the shove, bundled up against very cold weather on 24 Jan 21:
I can't be 100% certain but I believe the Milwaukee Road caboose was orange.
I just read in that Kalmbach rail magazine, (yes, a good ole slick paper one!) about this and several other roads owned by the Alco running DL&W outfit. The LBR is currently sitting idle as the paper mills it served are shutdown, but a tourist outfit is working on something with it. See? Reading actual paper magazines is good for you!!

I can play some Monad action too! Just outside Great Falls, MT:
Union Station, Dallas, Texas. 1947
It's wonderful it is still in use. I see the old red courthouse way over to the left.
