First published in 1967 by then-98-year-old author and caboose veteran William F. Knapke, The Railroad Caboose is a classic of American railroading history, documenting the venerable caboose's beginnings, its rise and many variations. The author includes wonderful memories of his decades of service on railroads across the country, much of which was spent at the end of the train, in the caboose. History, lore, fun and more than 100 rare caboose photographs make this a must-have for fans of American railroading and American rail history.
