Farewell is not Forever - Part 7: SamTrak Caboose #900

Caboose #900 was originally a logging caboose, which has been heavily modified for passenger use, although its basic shape remains the same. It was used by the Oregon Pacific Railroad for SamTrak. SamTrak ceased operating in 2002, and the caboose is now used only for special events. It is equipped with an air horn and lights to allow it to be used as the "front" of a train that cannot be turned around, such as this one.
