Southern Bay Window Caboose X741

The Cope Collection
-Owned by a museum member are 5 Seaboard Coast Line steel cabooses of various numbers. Unfortunately these cars are trapped and unaccessable by the museum in the Tyrone storage yard. Due to a bridge just beyond Tyrone that must be completely replaced before BGRM locomotives can be allowed to cross.
Louisville & Nashville Wooden Caboose #175
-A rare wooden caboose. The exterior wood panels were removed and stored by the museum several years ago and are still in good shape. The interior is sound but unless help can be found for this car soon, she will be lost to deterioration.
Baltimore & Ohio Wooden Caboose 2082
-Another wooden caboose in the museum collection. This car is currently stored along with the L&N wooden caboose. The car is surprisingly solid and in good condition for it's age. However, help is needed to save this car before the weather destroys her.
We are currently researching this caboose, but we believe it was originally a Monon caboose acquired by the L&N. Any information on this caboose would be appreciated. It is currently serving as storage for track equipment till appropriate facilities can be built. The caboose is very solid inside and out and a excellent canidate for a quick cosmetic restoration once it's heritage is fully researched.
