Nearly everyone is familiar with the railroad caboose. Formally, it's the punctuation mark that concludes every freight train — a mobile office for the crew, a lookout post. It is a van on the Canadian National, a cabin car on the Pennsylvania, a buggy on the Boston & Maine; but by whatever name, it remains symbolic of the railroad scene.
The Railroad Caboose is the most distinctive, the most comprehensive volume ever built around a piece of railroad rolling stock. Here's the biggest freight-trainload of railroadiana, legend and lore, ever hauled between hard covers. A century of tradition is served up in easy-to-read style with a matchless picture gallery.
