Overview

The Railroad Caboose: Its 100 Year History, Legend and Lore by William F. Knapke, Freeman Hubbard

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.
