CCC – Caboose

caboose 081

When Jim’s brother was alive he liked toys – and one of the toys he bought was a caboose that he had delivered and set on a short set of rails in his private park. For those of you who have always wondered what the inside of a caboose looks like, well here is your private tour.

This may be the end of the caboose but not of the fun. You can join in by visiting Frizz and his merry band of alphabet chasers by clicking here.Β Best part is that Frizz will serenade you if you visit – but unfortunately not with Chattanooga Choo Choo.

  1. I have never heard of a caboose before, so I looked it up in the OED. Here is what I read:
    1 A small kitchen on the deck of a ship. M18. β–Έ b An oven or fireplace erected on land. E19.

    2 A hut, a cabin; a poor dwelling. Chiefly N. Amer. E19. β–Έ b A prison, a lock-up. slang (orig. US). M19. β–Έ c A mobile hut or bunkhouse. Canad. E20.

    3 A guard’s van on a train; a car for workmen etc. on a goods train. N. Amer. M19.

    4 A person’s buttocks. US slang. E20.
    Thansk for the pix and the education!


    • Sorry but you got spammed – I just found your comment. My caboose is number 3 and is the last car on a train. I grinned when I saw that OED included 4. This is usually said as in “She has a big caboose.” Not a compliment.


  2. I imagine that delivery process to be difficult and expensive – but I’m glad you shared the results with us πŸ™‚
    I think old trains – like old barns – are of such photographic interest to me because they are from a time that has recently slipped by.


    • You are right about this being an expensive and difficult delivery. It is placed in a wooded area – requiring a very large tractor & trailer plus a crane. I wish I had been there to see it.


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
