Long Description:
Cette caboose porte le nom l'Express'Art et on y retrouve aussi le logo de l'école
La caboose est un wagon d’accompagnement des trains de marchandises, doté d’un frein à vis. Situé en queue de train, il était occupé par un agent chargé de la surveillance du train et de son freinage en cas de besoin.

Le fourgon-frein date d’avant la généralisation du freinage continu des trains, c’est-à-dire la possibilité d’actionner les freins de chaque wagon depuis la locomotive. De tels trains ont pu rouler jusque dans les années 1980.

[ENG]

This caboose is called Express'Art and is identified with the school's logo.
A caboose is a manned North American railroad car coupled at the end of a freight train. Cabooses provide shelter for crew at the end of a train, formerly required in switching and shunting, keeping a lookout for load shifting, damage to equipment and cargo, and overheating axles.
