Chapter members, Sally and John Cook have sold their vintage, 1920's Rutland, #36, caboose! This caboose has many miles over the Rutland Railroad and is a mini-museum with all of its original contents. It is my hope that our Chapter can play a role in its preservation and relocation to a place where it can be shared with the public. As Sally aptly puts it, "Many people today don't even know what a caboose is or what it was used for." The Cooks are looking for compensation to recover the expenses they have invested in preserving this wonderful piece of Rutland RR history. It would be sad if this caboose were to be purchased privately and moved out of state or worse yet converted into a Tiny House that has become so popular. Enjoy these pictures and let's hope we can someday step aboard and soak up the atmosphere that was a daily experience for yesterday's railroaders!
