Existing Seaboard Cabeese?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

A co-worker and ACL/SAL HS member Jim Harris has been put in charge of locating a Seaboard Caboose for his town of Franklinton, NC north of Raleigh. He works with the NCDOT Rail Division, so was asked to locate one. Does anyone know where there is an SAL caboose rotting away? At least it would go to a good home and be preserved in an old Seaboard town. I am sure the town is willing to pay for one, but it should be SAL. Many thanks, Marc

Probably quite a challenge to finding an original SAL caboose. Nevertheless, thought I would share this information. Years ago I photographed, SCL 05715, at Peck Recycling, now known as Simsmetal America, located on Deepwater Terminal Rd in Richmond, Va. I do not know if the caboose is still there. Good Luck

He could try the Fruit Growers Express Co in Jacksonville Florida. They had some SAL wide vision cabooses they were going to scrap.
