Remarks & Notes 
"Cabooses Ready to Depart Kroemer"

Ex-Missouri Pacific Railroad cabooses 13456 & 13388 sit ready for removal from the old Kroemer Siding, just off of Long Island Rail Road's Main Line in Riverhead, NY on the morning of November 18th, 2021. Both cabooses and an ex-P&LE boxcar were moved from this location to the NRHS Twin Forks Chapter's property, just 2.5 miles away across from the Riverhead train station. From the top of 13388, Long Island Crane & Rigging crews are seen prepping one of their Liebherr LTM 1090-4.1 mobile cranes for it's first task of lifting 13456 off of it's trucks.

Missouri Pacific Railroad (MP) cabooses 13456 (exx-MP 1191) & 13388 (exx-MP 1054) were both constructed from boxcar frames at the railroad's shops in Sedalia, MO during the early 1950s. Both served until 1981, when the MP phased out cabooses in favor of End of Train Devices (EOTDs). The cabooses were sold to the National Tube Works in Pennsylvania, then purchased (along with ex-P&LE boxcar 25624) by Frederick Cowan & Company which was located on the Kroemer Siding just off of the LIRR Main Line in Riverhead, NY. Sometime after the three pieces of equipment were delivered in the late 1980's, the siding was severed from the national rail network. The railcars sat as storage space for decades until being donated to the Twin Forks Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society by the property's new owner in 2019. They were finally moved to their new home at the Twin Forks Chapter's property across from the Riverhead train station on November 18th, 2021 with the assistance of Long Island Crane & Rigging Inc, Rapid Recovery Towing Ltd, the Long Island Rail Road and a small team of volunteers.
