Southern Pacific Cabooose 4743 sits quitely in Flatonia Tx. One can look inside and see the furniture that was used by many conductors,brakemen and switchmen. The sign that reads "Begin Harlingen Block" sits inside. Before UP took over SP, they would place the sign at certain intersections. This caboose was parked in the Harlingen yard which is now Rio Valley Switching Corp (RVSC)
This caboose was stored at Harlingen before being restored by the good Flatonia folks. It was hidden off the SP side of the yard and later moved to the UP-MP now RVSC side. I'll try to look for the pix and scan them.
