Artist's Description

This is one of the rail cars outside the Sacramento Rail Museum.

I was deeply disappointed when the caboose vamoosed! I just looked up one day and thought the train had forgotten its tail somewhere but they ALL have lost their tails. Of all the rail cars, the caboose was the most interesting for me because it seemed so important to make sure the train stayed “healthy” from the back side too. And it always had the railroaders who smiled and waved back, probably because they knew they were “letting” traffic go across the tracks soon. :-) Since they’ve disappeared, I’ve certainly heard of plenty crashes from cars or entire trains hitting the rear of other trains. Cost cutting probably killed cabooses but I’m glad I got to see them running on the tracks before they were dumped.
