    In order to hopefully get more eyeballs to potentially answer my question, I am posting this in HO, as well.

    My Hallmark standard Frisco caboose has a row of hooks under the edge of each side. The Frisco side door caboose has the same hooks. A photograph is attached so you can see them.

    Are these for storing chains?

    Any ideas?

    I would think poles for poling would be closer to the front of the train. It would be pretty inconvenient to retrieve a pole all the way at the back of the train.
