KRM ACQUIRES L & N WOOD CABOOSE.
KRM has been successful in acquiring for preservation L & N caboose #559 that operated on the Lebanon Branch including coming through New Haven. This wooden caboose was built in 1929. The caboose is in excellent condition and comes with nearly all items that were in the caboose including lamps, stove, forms, seats etc.
The acquisition of this historic caboose for a bid of $6,000.00 is well below the market value. Eighty percent of the bid price has been pledged at the time of bid closing by KRM members and others interested in preservation.
Many thanks to those who have contributed and made commitments for this acquisition. We look forward to others joining in this preservation endeavor. Additional donations are solicited to cover the remaining costs including the move of the caboose to KRM and measures to shelter it and make it available for viewing by the public.
Those who wish to contribute funds to and for the caboose should contact the KRM office as soon as possible. KRM has 60 days in which to move the caboose plus the cost of a buyer's premium and the moving costs.
