Remarks & Notes 
A couple of veteran cupola caboose's on the east end of B'Ville's caboose track with a yard caboose made out of an old steam locomotive tender and a road caboose. I remember having that re-painted 990074 on a work train at Watertown,WI.back in the early 70's probably about this same time as I was forced out of the freight pool and pulled for the Engineer's spot. We had engine 300 a ditcher and that shiny re-painted old cupola caboose. I remember ditching between Ixonia and Watertown and the Roadmaster wanted to go 35mph to throw the dirt far enough from the mainline. We hit an unmarked culvert and damn near tip the ditcher over.The Head Brakeman was Harley Lamp who came off a passenger job so he could be home every night living in Watertown......well Harley was so mad at me for listening to the Roadmaster that he wouldn't talk to me the rest of the day.
