Although built to plans supplied by parent road, New York Central, during the First World War, this standard wood caboose is a bit of an impostor. It is dressed to look like a member of the well-known fleet, as shown here. In point of fact, it is former Rutland Railroad No. 32. It was built as No. 82 in 1920 and renumbered in 1924. It was sold in Aug 1961 to Don Robinson (GMRC) then to Bob Adams.
