My point being... that, even after the implementation of the 2-man crew rule, there were still a *lot* of instances of cabooses on MAINLINE freights and coal trains. So, modelers need not box them up if they're running in 1988.

And you bring it up a lot Jim!
According to Nathans drgw.net mirror of this
group, there are 294 references to "SRCH_STR=Cabooses+
last" going all the way to 1999.
Not
all will be relevant, but there's a helluva lot of
cumulative info in there.
Didn't see any
penultimate analysis/ synopsis of later years and into
2000's usage, but info is there. Also those
'hors-de-combat' and still in use under other
liveries noted.
Random comment, cheers dave

So there'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's probably true from
a _rules_ perspective, it'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.



So: if you'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.



Incidentally, I saw solid orange and also 1-stripe schemes
represented in Mike's photos.



BTW-- calling Mike Bateman, if you're still on this
group, I have to talk to you about something. Please
contact me off list. Thanks,
