  1. Rolla, MO Sept 1968.
    I took these while attending UMR.
    This is my first attempt at posting on this site, so patience please.

    The single marker lamp is a curiosity.

    Thanks for posting the caboose shots. Was that taken east of Rolla?

    Fantastic, thanks for sharing. I would give a months pay to be able to travel back in time and go there for a few hours.
     
  8. Ken, yes, east of Rolla. The local freight at that time used these wooden cabeese. I have no idea why only one marker light.

    Thanks. I thought it was east of the 63 exit, recognized it. There is a small but fairly deep ravine along there on the highway side of the tracks. I used to hike up there with my 22 and just fire away at stuff down in the ravine. That's the only place I ever killed anything with my rifle. Blew away a crawfish. Felt bad about it after!

  10. I have no idea if that is the same car as my photos from 1968. Looks like the displayed car has been heavily modified.
    Thought I saw somewhere that removal of ladders and roof walks did happen to some cabeese in 1970's (?).

    Not the same caboose. The caboose in Osceola was a side door caboose from the beginning and was SLSF #103. There is a picture on Mike Condren's website of the Osceola caboose in service: http://condrenrails.com/Frisco Catalog/Others/FR557.jpg
