Remarks & Notes 
While most freight trains had cabooses in 1977, relatively few had waycars painted in United States Bicentennial livery. A Kennecott Copper Corp. train conductor is pictured dropping his caboose from the haulage mainline into the Copperton yard upon arrival from Magna. Railpictures.net grammarians will undoubtedly notice the improperly used adjective on the side of the little caboose, some nine months after the Bicentennial. Today the 425 is part of the Ogden Union Station collection.

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.
