Old caboose in Loraine

Postby BR&P » Wed Nov 13, 2013 7:09 pm

There is a wooden caboose in Loraine OH in need of a good home - if it is still there. Bing birdseye view shows it is. It's B&O C2629, former Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh #278. It's in what looks like an abandoned business (Think it was Subway Coal Co) at Canton and East 29th Street. No idea who owns it or if they would sell it but maybe some group would like a project. Yes, it's rough but I've seen worse brought back to life.

Any info? Any interest?
