Nice shot of it. It's a unique concept, turning a caboose into a rental. I wonder what they did inside?


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Lancaster, PA has a Caboose Motel. Close by the Strasburg Railroad. They would make a great "Tiny Home" for 1 or 2 people. A longer "Drover" ? caboose would be even better.

very nice, We've stayed in one in NSW or northern Victoria many years ago.
Only issue that night there was a train crash not far away and it went off and of course we're in a railway carriage and it made me think for a while!

They can be very comfortable and also freezing!

Ha, the SOO line ran right past my home in Northern Illinois as a kid. Their black red and white color scheme on their engines were some of my favorite colors.
