From out of nowhere comes this long lost soul. Some corrspondence and photos this week have lead to this discovery in Texas, of all places. Katy Texas is the home of this depot and caboose on the old MKT line. Tom Blazen was confused by this as the MKT never owned a caboose like this one. His investigation lead him to me, and along with some other help, we have discovered the long lost remains of Ex-Copper Range Caboose #5. At least that is our best guess, anyone beg to differ? Tom is working to find out how it got all the way to Texas, anyone out there have a clue?
Kevin, I agree on the lineage; the car is unmistakable! Kinda odd though.... Why a CRRR cabin? Here's a theory that really stretches it; the caboose is like many other retirees- she moved south on retirement! (VBG)
