IC Caboose 9648 Gets a new coupler

July 21, 2022 7:25 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Our beloved Caboose needed a replacement coupler installed on the south end.

Over the years and years of going back and forth as the crowd favorite "Caboose Train" it simply had worn to the point is was no longer usable.

LUCKILY, we have some spares from the our Swift Refrigerated cars and one was dug out by Jeff and Connor. Following a good clean up and inspection, the assembly was found to be in great shape. So for a good portion of the weekend, Jeff, Connor, and James Tarbet worked to remove the old draw bar / coupler assembly and install the replacement.

Turned out great, and test run proved perfect operation! Watch the calendar for Caboose Days coming up, and come ride with us
