Caboose ChartersIMG_0273

Ever climbed into a cupola—the observation deck atop a caboose?  Charter a caboose for you and up to eleven guests! Converted in the 1970s from a boxcar, this caboose offers a level of luxury unknown to the train crews that traditionally lived and rode on a caboose: carpeting and cushioned chairs await you. This car seats up to twelve riders (eight on the main level, four in the cupola) and can be rented for any regular itinerary.  Caboose availability is limited. Call 1-888-286-2737 for further information.  A caboose ride is $2500 and includes lunch. Applies to full trips only.
