Caboose For Sale
A caboose could make a great guest house or studio. Please refer serious inquiries only to the seller via FB Marketplace. Link is below.
We have a former Illinois Central Wide Vision Centralia Built (riveted body, wide vision) caboose for sale. It is presently owned by and painted as Delaware Coast Line Railroad 1982. I do not know its former IC number but that number may be somewhere on the frame/center sill. During its restoration in 2015, the car body was stripped down to bare metal, metal repair/replacement was done as appropriate and the caboose was then primed and painted in the blue and yellow you see in the images below. The caboose still has luster and the paint is in great shape! From my recollection, the caboose has yet to age out of the system so it should interchange via Norfolk Southern after a mechanical inspection. It is on roller bearings and was redone back in 2015. The asking price is $25,000 for the caboose as shown here. Of course that price is negotiable within reason. Serious parties are invited to inquire within and are free to inspect the caboose in Georgetown, DE at their leisure. Trucking is also an option for those in more remote, non-rail connected locations. The caboose is complete, intact and serviceable. Please review the photos of it after its restoration as well as those from the restoration efforts. It came to the Delaware Coast Line Railroad as Gettysburg Railroad 101. Those of you who are roster-keepers may be able to trace it backwards to its IC number from that.
