Members from the Colorado & Southern Railway Society presents the history of the C&S Caboose No. 1006.
The Colorado & Southern Railway Society is in the process of restoring the C&S Caboose No. 1006 to operational status, as it would have appeared in 1914, when the Colorado & Southern rebuilt its cabooses to the state they appear in today. Currently only three C&S bobber cabooses remain. No. 1009 is at the CRRM, No. 1008 is being restored by the Farmer brothers, and No. 1006, which is owned by the town of Silver Plume. Caboose No. 1006 is the only one of the three to retain all its original parts. Thus, it stands as the only truly complete C&S Narrow gauge Caboose.

Get ready for fun! Cherylene Evans is presenting “Adding Whimsy to your Layout.” We will meet at Doug Mayes home, and will be creating a bit of whimsy for our railroads. Bring an old pickup truck, or a gondola car that is no longer worthy rolling stock or perhaps a little cart or wagon and we will plant succulents in them. They should survive the summer, add whimsy to your railroad and can live indoors through the winter.
