Post subject:  Two Wooden Caboose Bodies available in NW Pennsylvania

The bodies of two wooden cabooses are immediately available in NW Pennsylvania.

Caboose #1 - This former PRR ND Class Cabin Car was built in August 1916, and subsequently sold to the Lake Erie, Franklin and Clarion Railroad where it was on their roster as LEF #7.

Caboose #2 - This 4 wheel bobber caboose was built by the Lake Erie, Franklin and Clarion Railroad in their shops in May 1944 as LEF #592.

Following retirement from the LEF&C, cabooses #7 and #592 were moved off rail, minus wheels, and became cabins north of Clarion. The land on which the cabooses sit has recently changed hands. The current owner is planning to destroy both cabooses this winter unless a suitable arrangement can be made to make the cabooses go away by a party with the knowledge and wherewithal to successfully execute a project of this nature. The current owner wishes to remain anonymous, and has asked me to screen any serious inquiries.

I have multiple interior and exterior images of both cabooses, however this site is rejecting my uploads, i.e. "The image file you tried to attach is invalid". Please PM me only if you are serious and desire images.

Both of these caboose bodies will be preserved. We are getting the bay window body and will use it as a yard office for the J&L Narrow Gauge Railroad. The other is being purchased by a private owner and will also be moved to Ohio.
