Missouri-Kansas-Texas

—1882 —

This side-door caboose was rebuilt in 1899, and the renumbered and modified several times in its long life, but its original builder is unknown. It does not have the usual cupola or lookout on its roof, making it more difficult for its crew to observe the train for potential safety problems. The doors on the side were common on cabooses used on branch lines. Having this caboose turned a freight into a mixed train, where a few passengers and packages of freight or express could also be carried. It is 39' 2" long, and has leaf springs in its wheel assemblies (trucks) to provide a more comfortable ride. Donated in 1952 by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad.
