Dreary day photo from 1995 which appears to show the caboose in question.

I'm curious, why stick a caboose (or any other car) on two separate panels of track. They're not saving that much rail, nor that many ties and it just looks odd, besides complicating creating a level "base" for the car. Plus, it complicates things if you need to move the car to fix rotten ties, or anything else.(not that many folks think of such a problem happening down the road)

Last week I stopped to look around at the Depot at Doolittle's in DuBois, PA. This Budd coach was in process of being converted into a pizza place. A contractor said he was going through tons of bits while drilling through the car's stainless steel frame to run electrical conduit.
