Group,=20

Trying to locate more info and hopefully an HO model of a caboose similar t=
o the Thistle caboose that floated away and was mostly buried during the 19=
83 flood. Pictures are in the book 'Thistle, Focus on Disaster' by Sumsion.=
=20

Photos of the caboose before the flood show it was a very short bobber with=
two windows and a single window in the centered cupola. Pictures of the ca=
boose are available at=20
http://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?11,2024090=20

It looks nothing like #01125 seen at=20
http://www.netn.com/DParchive/D+RGW_Cabs/DP-5020.jpg=20

At the time of the flood it was owned by Bob Pace, a D&RGW engineer, and th=
e story is that he got it from the D&RGW. Someone on another forum suggeste=
d that it may have been a Utah & Pleasant Valley Ry. caboose.=20

Your help would be appreciated.=20

Thanks in advance,=20
