Transfer Caboose


 

5 Different Versions
  • Version 1. This short body bay window caboose design was developed by International Car and MoPac in the 1970s. Several other railroads used very similar cars. These were assigned to road service and were NOT transfer cabooses.
  • Version 2. Southern Pacific also evaluated the MoPac design, then in 1980 they came up with their own variation with a shorter, diagonal panel roof.
  • Version 3. Transfer Caboose - Long Roof. Transfer Cabooses were usually built by the railroads themselves using materials on hand such as old freight car frames and side sheets from retired boxcars. Since they were meant for cross-town moves between yards, bay windows or coupolas along with other amenities were left off.
  • Version 4. Transfer Caboose - Short Roof. These Transfer Cabooses were built with short, diagonal panel roofs clipped from old boxcars. This practice was very common.
  • Version 5. Transfer Caboose - With Running Board. Most Transfer Cabooses built in 1966 and earlier had running boards (a.k.a. roofwalks) and ladders to reach them. Many kept their running boards until the end of the caboose era. Since this test shot was assembled and photographed, improvements have been made to the ladders.
