Conrail #23660, location unknown, August 1981, photo by Chuck Zeiler

Conrail #23660, location unknown, August 1981, photo by Chuck Zeiler I'm pretty sure this was shot in the Chicago area. It's a caboose with obvious heritage. I wish I had more info about this caboose, and I'll bet there's a lot of stories this caboose could tell. Anyway, if anyone has any information about this caboose, please post a comment here. Thanks.

Eureka, I found a link with a clue.

An excellent example of a completely bastardized ex New Haven NE-6 caboose. Those PC boys really hated the New Haven and performed this obscenity on many of the New Haven's NE-5 and NE-6 buggies. Curse the Penn Central!
