Caboose reaches final destination in Melvern’s Railroad Park

A retired Union Pacific caboose arrived at its terminal destination today, delivered to Melvern’s Railroad Park aboard a lowboy semi-trailer. The caboose was unloaded with the help of backhoes and a front end loader and set on its wheels on a short section of track near the park’s train-watching overlook. Photos thanks to Jim Irey.
