Overview

This can no longer be called a "crummy" since it recently had a coat of paint. The numbers and ICC info have not been repainted yet.

It is part of the museum and visitor's center in Marquette.

Description 

The Milwaukee Road shops built 315 "rib-sided" design caboose between 1939 and 1951. After 1951, the Milwaukee Road contracted with Thrall Car Manufacturing Company to build caboose for the railroad. The so-called Thrall cars, of which this is one, are of a more traditional riveted steel construction.
