ABOUT THE CABOOSE
It's a real rail car! It was transported to The Yellow Barn at Shenandoah Caverns June 27th, 2012.
It was likely manufactured around 1960, based on similar cars that are close in number.
For Train Enthusiasts, some facts: The number on the car, 557581, looks to be original N&W number and is easily verifiable by checking the ACI label. It’s likely that this car is an ex. NKP rail car 481 (Nickel Plate Railroad car, No. 481) Nickel Plate Rail was merged into Norfolk & Western in 1964.
The owner of Shenandoah Caverns, Earl Hargrove Jr., is a train enthusiast, so there are many trains to see on the property. American Celebration has model trains in the lobby and a huge 100' train float! The Yellow Barn has model trains running along the beams throughout the building, and of course the Barrel Train!
