Elgin Joliet & Eastern caboose 549 was donated to Whiting, Indiana and is shown here in 2008 sitting near 119th Street in that city:

The paint scheme chosen for display was the one that these 50 (numbers 500-549) 1956-built cabooses originally wore, with white lettering instead of the later green. Also displayed there with 549 was Indiana Harbor Belt transfer caboose #10, which was originally a New York Central caboose. Recently I went through Whiting at where I thought the two cabooses were displayed, but couldn't find them. Does anyone know where these two might have been moved to?

Thanks!
