Colorado & Southern Railroad wooden steam era caboose. The Pueblo Railway Museum. Pueblo Colorado USA. 2011.

My cousin Allen took this photo on a recent vacation road trip to Pueblo Colorado.

Wooden cabooses were the industry standard for many years begining during the 1800's on American railroads.

This very nicely maintained restored example from the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad affiliate Colorado & Southern Railroad, today is on display at The Pueblo Railway Museum.

The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy used wooden cabooses like this on branchline switching locals in to the 1960's, and actually set aside many for historic preservation.

One is on display in downtown Batavia Illinois, at The Batavia Depot Museum.
