Black Is The New Red? Despite perceptions by the non-railfan public that a caboose is red, they came in a lot of colors, although the G&U's rolling office is the first one I have seen wearing a coat of black paint. After dropping a tank car in West Upton yard, the G&U gets their train back together so they can deliver the caboose, with Santa Claus aboard, to visit with the kids.
From a hint of "Bee" (NKP 765), colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, to "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" with Yellow & Black colors! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
Have you ever watched cabooses, enjoyed their uniqueness, wondered about the men inside, or the jobs they do? Once an everyday sight on the rails, they have decreased in numbers, yet they are a very important part of railroad history.
