I like most Canadians over 50 have a fascination with
railways and steam engines in particular. 
I decided to put together this page showing some of the 
Cabooses that are in use and in private hands today.
I would also like to add any that are from our past.

 
 
 
This site is a collection of pictures railway cabooses from all over.
You are invited to submit any picture that you have that could go on this page.

On the waterfront, Burrard Inlet, 1958
This picture was submitted by Dave Green. The following is his words on this picture.
The picture was taken in 1958
Always loved this pic my dad took from Powell St looking down on the Great Northern Dock just east of Ballantyne Pier. That old flat top caboose (76719) was a rare sight even when I was a kid in the 60's.
C.N.R. Diesel, [Road Eng. #]8077 [Class MS-10g] is shown with the caboose.

"I have restored a 1940's era CNR caboose. It will be featured in this year's Doors Open London and will be
open to the public on September 29th and September 30th 
between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. It is located at 2343 Trafalgar Street London ON (N.W. corner of Crumlin and Trafalgar St.)

Please extend a special invite to all the local members of the CN Pensioners Association to drop by for a visit.  If anyone is interested in volunteering for any portion of this event as a tour guide I would be most grateful. I also am looking for someone with knowledge of telegraph, Morse Code and railway telecommunications."

Caboose 437083, displayed on its own track on the northeast corner of Stafford Drive and 1st Avenue South in Lethbridge Alberta on March 11th, 2014.
It is part of a series of wood cabooses 
(437039-437084), manufactured in 1943 and still 
bears its original number.  Around November 1987, CP Rail sold, dismantled or approved retirement of 52 cabooses, including 437083.

After the Lethbridge yard was relocated to Kipp, approximately 29 kilometres (18 mi) northwest of 
Lethbridge in 1988, the City decided to create a
historical display to mark the Canadian Pacific Railway presence, using the former 1905 Union Station (now a health centre) as a centerpiece. 2-8-0 steam locomotive CPR 3651 was then moved from Galt Gardens across the street, and placed at the west end, while wood caboose 437083 brought the rear at the east end. So as 
not to obstruct vehicle passage into the health centre parking lot, the locomotive was placed slightly behind the station.

CPR 4367788 caboose, displayed beside "the Station" restaurant in Kimberley BC where it was used by 
owner as an office, in the mid-1980s, after the owner bought it from the CPR in 1976. The caboose was built 
in 1922, one of the last wooden cabooses made.

When the station building was demolished to make
way for a Shoppers Drug Mart, the caboose was 
moved to another downtown location, restored by the Kimberley Caboose Restoration Committee and
donated to the Kimberley Underground Mining 
Railway, a seasonal tourist operation in
southwestern BC, see the link below.

Late Lorne Unwin Massey F. Jones collection
The interior of the caboose now features many of the original furnishings, such as the pot-bellied stove with its guardrail to keep the pots and pans from sliding off, as
well as historical photos of Kimberley's rail history. 
Most of this information is courtesy of the Sullivan 
Mine & Railway Historical Society (SM&R), which runs the Kimberley Underground Mining Railway (KUMR),
an interpretive small gauge railway, about 2 miles from
the former mine, now closed and unsafe to visit. 

The highlight of the KUMR visit is a tour with stops through a 750 foot tunnel featuring features a life size model of areas that would have been seen in the mine; such as a rock "face", which is painted, drilled and ready to blast, a refuge station, and equipment such as the slusher sub and the mucking machine. A miner demonstrates the slusher sub, the jackleg drill and the mucking machine during each of the tours. http://www.kimberleysundergroundminingrailway.ca/

DAR Caboose Land of Evangeline Route at the
South Maitland Park, Nova Scotia
 
Caboose 79770, manufactured by CN-Pullman Safety Car rebuilt 8/1975 ex CN 79770 (up to 7/1995 - when it was taken out of service)  (means it was first that piece of equipment first ) CN 47200 series  boxcar - up to 8/1975.

In other words, that caboose was first of all a boxcar in the 47200 series. 472276)
CN decided in August 1975 to take it off the road and
rebuild it into a caboose (and I remember when they did that to a whole bunch of boxcars)They then gave it the number 79770

In 1995, they took it out of service and either donated or sold it to South Maitland, where it's now on display
as the DAR Caboose, Land of Evangeline Route at the South Maitland Park Nova Scotia

CNR Caboose #79124 on display at the Duncan Railway Station in Duncan, British Columbia

Duncan, BC - Train Cabooses on Waymarking.com

The caboose was purchased by the Canadian Northern 
Railway, which became the Canadian National Railway, and was used across Canada. In 1953 it was brought to Vancouver Island to work freight trains from Victoria to Youbou. It also saw time at the end of log and lumber trains between Youbou and Cowichan Bay.
When it was declared surplus in 1982, the City of Duncan bought it and placed it in the park beside the train station. 
It was used as office space for awhile but in 2008, a full restoration was started. As you can see from the photos, lots of effort was made to show what it would have looked like during its time on Vancouver Island.

A "well decorated" caboose, sitting idle off the 
mainline, almost opposite the 12th STREET EAST 
Tower in southeast Calgary.  The track in the 
foreground is the end of the CP Brooks Sub, 
about Mile 172.4

We could speculate that the caboose could be
a resting place for yard crews, instead of entering
Tower itself for meals etc., as it seems to have been
there for some time. The view was taken in May 2014.

DW&P (Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway) Caboose
#76938 at Duluth Minn. June 1975

The Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway 
(reporting mark DWP) is a subsidiary railroad of 
Canadian National Railway (CN)
operating in northern Minnesota, United States. A CN
system-wide rebranding beginning in 1995 has seen the DWP logo and name largely replaced by its parent company. The DWP line is CN's connection between International Falls and Duluth, Minnesota, where the railroad connects to a short stretch of the former Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railway before following the former Wisconsin Central (both now wholly owned by CN) to Chicago, Illinois.

Ex caboose 437248, used as an office for L. Hansen

(near the former Ogden Shops).
When new cars arrive, they are usually
unloaded in a secure yard there, custom checked and
sent to dealers.
The photo was taken in the mid-80s, so the aspect of 
the caboose might be changed.

Caboose LHF 001 at its former location in northeast 
Calgary in April 1989.
It seems to be the same caboose as the one picture 
above and moved to Ogden where the company 
relocated.
CP caboose 437377 stood in front of the Royal Canadian 
Legion Ogden #154, at 2625 78 Avenue S.E.
(near Glenmore Trail) in Calgary, from about 1987 to 
September 2012, heavily fenced, to prevent vandalism.

Sometime in early 2012, the building was closed and the caboose was sold to a concern near Mossleigh (about 40 miles south of Calgary) called Aspen Crossing. The facility features a railway theme and has several railcars and cabooses on site, which they use as visitor accommodation.

The move took place on September 21st 2012 and part of it is documented in a 3-minute video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOpaYGnXtkU .
It shows the caboose also being painted yellow, to be 
used temporarily as a retail outlet for the campground.

The Branch had to close down in early in 2012 and sold the caboose to Aspen Crossing, a campground with a railway historical theme near Mossleigh Alberta.

Selecting "Aspen Crossing" in Google Maps or Google Earth Street View will give a good idea of what their campground looks like. Google Earth is best.

Central Western Railway end-cupola wood slat 
caboose 789; at Stettler in 1990.
It was used within the Alberta Prairie Excursion train,
when they first started service. View it  of the 6060 in 
my CNR Steam Engine page
http://yourrailwaypictures.com/CNRsteamengines/
The  CWRL 910 shown elsewhere on this page is also
there. The origin of wood slat caboose 789 cannot be
traced but it's most probably an ex-CN 785000 to 
79000 series caboose, as a lot of the CWRL rolling
stock was acquired from CN. View similar ones at:

Napierville Junction Railway caboose 39 in 
Bicentennial paint, photographed around Delson 
QC, about 25 km (16 miles) south
of Montreal  in the late 70s. 

The purpose of the Napierville Junction Railway
was to convey freight across the US/Canadian border from Rouses Point NY through Lacolle QC where it was checked by Customs), then on to Delson and eventually Montreal, on a Delaware & Hudson subsidiary.

The D&H was bought and merged into the CPR in the early 1990s, thus turning the Rouses Point to Delson line into Canadian Pacific's Lacolle Sub. 

The NJR has 2 diesel locomotives and 4 cabooses.

It may interest some that Napierville Juntion 38, the
number immediately preceding this one, is a standard
