Caboose 4014 lettering complete

A photo of a completed 4014 outside this past Saturday afternoon at Thomaston Shop. This former Central Vermont caboose was originally built in 1925, and retired in 1972 when it was purchased by the Steamtown Foundation in Vermont. In 1987 the caboose was purchased privately and moved to several museums around the New England region before it eventually found a home at the Railroad Museum of New England and the Naugatuck Railroad.
