The Caboose

Our wooden caboose was built in October 1941, numbered 436986. It operated with CP until donating it to the Town of High River in 1988. It was donated to the Society in 2009 and transported to the Galt Historic Railway Park. Restoration work is ongoing, any help on this project would be appreciated!
