Long Description:
This caboose is connected to 3 box cars, into which doors and windows have been added as a row of retail stores. A wooden deck along one side of the 4 cars allows for access. The whole thing looks abandoned: two box cars say "For Rent" and cahins block all access points to the deck. The caboose has no markings except for "36" on the deck side.

This is Montour Railroad #36 and is one of 7 all steel units that once belonged to the Union Pacific Railroad until purchased for use on the MTR in November of 1969.

This is one of 100 Class CA-4 cabooses that were built by the Pullman-Standard Manufacturing Co. in Michigan City, Indiana for Union Pacific in September through November of 1944. (visit link) This particular caboose was originally numbered as UP 3865 but was renumbered in May of 1959 to UP 25165. (visit link) After being acquired by the Montour Railroad it was renumbered as MTR 36. (visit link)
