Remarks & Notes 
Being in engine service both as a Fireman and Engineer my experience with caboose's or cabeese as some fellow RF's call them was not that close. Anytime I got a chance to deadhead in one I would go for the experience. The Milwaukee's were comfortable....I remember on the Watertown Patrol in the 60's we'd sleep in them(4 bunks) and cook in them....this was before lodging was available...well...we had a bunk house(shack)just west of the depot on the west side of C&NW/MILW diamond...between the noise/rats/bugs and soiled blankets you wouldn't have put your dog in it! The BN (ex-CB&Q)caboose in the above photo were rattle traps....they were very noisy...no insulation....cold in the winter and hot in the summer. My favorites were the CN caboose's....they were like having your own Pullman car!

All of Tom Farence's pictures with stories. These are too incredible not to put in an album. Will include other's photos if they have a write up to go with.
