Surviving LV Cabooses

Postby caboose9 » Mon Mar 20, 2006 5:16 pm


One result I had hoped would occur from the posting of the LV surviving cabooses list was the receipt of additions, corrections, and updates to the listing.

Alas, this has not occurred, so I'll ask a question or 2:

Anyone near Sarver, PA, who could ask at the Cooper Station Restaurant, Rt. 356, to see if they have photos of this caboose before repainting and, if not, if they would let you inside to look for numbers?

Is LV 95136/P&S 197 still in Brookville, PA? If not, where did it go?

Thanks for any help you can give on these 2 hacks!

Cheers, Roger

The only LV caboose I am aware of that is not on the list is an ancient wooden caboose I recently located in the woods in a town within northeastern PA...somewhere :wink: Its actually in good shape and am working with the owner to purchase it. Its difficult to get to and I havent spent much time near it. Its pre 95 series numbering. Once I discover its number Ill report it and once I am officially the owner, Ill say where it is :-D

There have been several threads about LV cabooses. One of them, which I can't find, had questions about 2 cabs at East Satauket NY. I don't recall whether all the details were developed. "Dining Car 1890" was the restaurant in that town. I just happened to look through the May 1975 issue of RAILROAD magazine. Pages 20 and 21 have photos of the restaurant (OK, page 20 is primarily a photo of the legs on a gal AT the restaurant) but they DO show an exterior shot of the cabs. No numbers are visible nor are they identified in the text, but both had the round "porthole" windows in the ends which should help narrow it down. If they have previously been identified elsewhere, sorry for the duplication.
