1972 BN Caboose 10741
Posted by peterctexas on Saturday, March 11, 2023 12:40 PM

Hi Folks,  I'm restoring a 1972 BN Caboose 10741  It's in really good shape to begin with but the floor needs to be replaced and I figured I would replace the interior side panels.  I also want to repaint the interior (maybe the exterior).  Although I do expect some visitors to spend the weekend on board, I wish to keep it as original as possible.  Can anyone point me in the direction of information on the interior construction, for example; are the steel cabinets and closets removable or are the welded in place?

Any and all help is appreciated!

I'll post a picture when I figure out how

Register for the RyPN Interchange, and post the details.  You will get all the serious-preservationist attention you could want.
