Orient Express Caboose History
If you've hummed along to the song Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe you have sung about this caboose, which was a member of that railroad's family. This is a very traditional caboose from the outside, while being completely refurbished on the inside. It features a second-story cupola from which the "caboose man" used to wave. We believe this caboose was built in Kansas City just after World War ][ and was used in high-speed freight trains, traveling all over the USA before it retired at the Featherbed Railroad.
For train nerds, this is a Santa Fe Class CE-1 of 315 cars rebuilt from much older cars for systemwide service by the West Wichita (Kansas) shops between October 1966 and March 1968. They were rebuilt in no particular order from three series: 1650-series (AC&F, 1928) , 2200-series (AT&SF, 1948), and 500-series (AT&SF, 1949). Many Santa Fe cabooses had round roofs but some had peaked roofs.
