Post subject:  Another toilet question.

I am in Southern California, so no freezing problems here. We operate an AT&SF 999570 caboose on weekends as a fundraiser. The caboose now has a microsomething type toilet that is totally trashed. Many people are put off by the fact there is no toilet, even though it is only a 40 minute ride.
I am looking for suggestions on how to replace it and what to replace it with. There is no power in the caboose.
Thank you

Sounds like a typical Microphor caboose toilet system--


Those guys are the OEM manufacturer and should be able to help with parts, etc. A properly-operating Microphor system just needs compressed air (reducing valve and regulator off the brake pipe) to operate.

Google "Microphor" for additional info from users and other railcar/caboose operators.
