Long Description:
MP 13502 was built as C&EI 17 (2nd)in 1950 by the Chicago & Eastern Illinois as part of a dozen (#7 - #21) steel, 'streamlined' cupola, cabooses. C&EI 17 (2nd) and 11 other of these cabooses came to the MP when the C&EI was absorbed into the MP in 1970.

These hacks were run through the MP caboose modernization program where, somewhat oddly, their streamlined cupolas were replaced by standard MP cupolas. It was retired to Branson in 1985. (Source: Michels, 1996, Cabooses of the MP Lines.)

(Extra-special thanks to fellow Waymarker, Caboose9, for the information)

It appears to be some sort of office for the Table Rock Asphalt Company
