Built in November, 1941 by the St. Louis Car Company of St. Louis, Missouri.
The caboose was truly a rolling office, complete with a coal stove, ice box, drinking water tank, sink and sleeping bunks.
The conductor used desk space provided to do his paper work and the rear brakeman sat in the cupola to watch over the train while it was in motion.
This car was equipped with the unique "Duryea Cushioned Underframe".
This caboose was at one time used on the nightly "Cannonball" freight train that ran from Muskegon, thorugh Grand Haven to Grand Rapids.
It was retired from service in 1981 and donated to the City of Grand Haven by the Chessie System in 1983.
