May 85 Number 6 & 8

A Caboose always humanizes these images for me.

After all a boxcar full of stuff doesn’t have a personality outside that of the logo, for me anyway.

Here we are in the Ozol, Ca area again with SSW Caboose 50

The interesting difference between the posting here at the RR archives is color and condition. Also notice the welded up windows. If I recall, Dad mentioned that the crews were getting shot at and the reduction of openings was for safety.

I wonder if anyone can confirm this ?

I also appreciate the D&H box car “snip” and of course SP 2626 that. according to teh RR Archive was revived by the UP in the 90s .
