THEN: The original 1906 Caboose
A crane placed the Caboose on the Museum tracks
NOW: Before restoration
The most recent addition of railroad history to our Interpretive Center, this is the oldest and only remaining vintage 1906 Moffat caboose! This rare, wooden caboose came to the Museum in January of 2021. Our plan is to restore it to its 1936 steel construction.
Stay tuned for more details!
In the News
Check out the articles written about the arrival of the 1906 Caboose:
• Grand Gazette: “Caboose added to collection at railroad museum”
• Sky-Hi News: “Moffat caboose arrives at Granby railroad museum”
• Winter Park Times: “Caboose added at the Railroad Museum”
It was quite costly to transport this vintage caboose to our museum in January of 2021. We currently do not have the funds to be able to restore it back to its 1930’s steel structure. If you would like to volunteer your time and/or donate to the project, we would be very grateful. To allocate your donation to this project specifically, please mention the 1906 Caboose Project in the optional ‘Write a note’ section in the donation form.
