Originally a Monon caboose built by Monon in Lafayette Indiana and later acquired by the L&N. 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.
