|Taken August 1982 in Plover.
Caboose #112 was unique among the GBW fleet by being the only copula
caboose on the modern roster. The rest were bay window types. This
caboose was purchased used from the Missouri Pacific Railroad in 1980.
Bob Schoneman captured this
picture of the caboose in August 1982. In later years the caboose
would get a large smoke jack added and the remaining side window would get
blanked out. The red markers on the caboose were used to indicate
that this was the end of a train.
This caboose is still in service on the Wisconsin Central
Railroad, usually seen in Chippewa Falls where it is used when the local
trains have to make long backing moves to service Warehousing of Wisconsin
east of the city.
