And you bring it up a lot Jim!<br>According to Nathans drgw.net mirror of this group, there are 294 references to &quot;SRCH_STR=Cabooses+ last&quot; going all the way to 1999.<br>Not all will be relevant, but there&#39;s a helluva lot of cumulative info in there.<br>Didn&#39;t see any penultimate analysis/ synopsis of later years and into 2000&#39;s usage, but info is there. Also those &#39;hors-de-combat&#39; and still in use under other liveries noted.<br>Random comment, cheers dave <br class="yui-cursor"><div class="ygroups-quoted"><br><br>---In DRGW@yahoogroups.c..., &lt;drgwlpd@...&gt; wrote :<br><br><div id="ygrps-yiv-1829214002">So there&#39;s been a lot of questions on here over the years about when cabooses stopped running on mainline freights on the DRGW. The usual answer is late 1985, and while that&#39;s probably true from a _rules_ perspective, it&#39;s not an absolute. I was tooling around on the trainweb.org/railblazer site today and was pretty surprised to see how many were still running on trains clear thru the end of 1988. <br>
<br>
So: if you&#39;re modeling the 1980s, you have plenty of justification for keeping a few cabeese on trains up thru that point in time, at the least. <br>
<br>
Incidentally, I saw solid orange and also 1-stripe schemes represented in Mike&#39;s photos.<br>
<br>
BTW-- calling Mike Bateman, if you&#39;re still on this group, I have to talk to you about something. Please contact me off list. Thanks,<br>
<br>
