Today we head back to Boulder to pick up our second UP caboose for preservation from this site, this one is the oldest known UP caboose NCS 2095 from 1880, it follows on the heels of 2269 (1901) that we moved 3 weeks ago, 2269 was pretty derelict and had been used as a chicken coop but after cleaning out had almost all the removed wood stored inside, and still maroon paint on the floors. The fabulous pictures of 2269 in happier times appears in the UP caboose book. We are appealing for help to fund this second move and are close to your goal to achieve it by the deadline of August 13th.
