The Railroad Caboose: Its 100 year History, Legend, and Lore: 6x9-Hardbound with dust kacket, 238 pages, 165 illustrations. "Everyone is familiar with the railroad caboose, the home of the conductor and train crew who used to ride on the end of a freight train. It was a mobile office, a lookout post. It was a van on the Canadian National, and a cabin car on the New York Central, a buggy on the Boston & Maine - but whatever name, it remains symbolic of the railroad scene and the way it was. This is a complete story of the caboose from the earliest days to it being replaced by an electronic gadget."
