CABOOSE ARRIVES — In top photo, Milwaukee Road bridge arid building foreman, John W. Montgomery, H06 Ohio, swings onto the reconditioned caboose sche duled for display af the Fair grounds. At left he shows how the railroaders warmed themselves in front of the old black pot-bellied stove. The caboose serves as living quarters for train crews. This one, No. 0774, will be swung onto a lowboy for its trip to the Fairgrounds, a much quicker operation than the slow moving of the locomotive Milwaukee 1004 on temporary tracks in 1957. The caboose was painted orange with the "Milwaukee" trademark in red. The hand rails are white. Caboose 0774 Arrives for Display A spjc-and-span "bazoo wagon" arrived in Austin just one hour after the new year and will go on display at the Mower County Fairgrounds behind the steam locomo- motive, 1004. Caboose No. 0774 arrived about 1 a.m. Thursday, resplendent with m new coat of orange paint and completely reconditioned in the Milwaukee Wis., shops. The 0774 was built in those same il: MAI L ROoiJr"." Sat., Jan.

It's equipped with an old pot - bellied stove (coal) and oil lamps. It has traveled an estimated 900,000 miles. "Caboose" was originally a nau tical term for a ship's gallery and sounds as if it were once known as a "cab house," William J, Quirin, Milwaukee Road president, told THE HERALD. "It has many nicknames, most of which are humorously derogatory," Quinn added. " few such • nicknames are crummy, brain box, bazoo wagon, cabin, chariot, louse cage, perambulator and rest room. "I am told there are numerous other nicknames that the pos tal laws and polite language j! would prohibit mentioning," Quinn wrote. The'Milwaukee Road is presenting the old caboose to the Austin Rail Fans Club as a companion piece to the Milwaukee 1004. The 0774 is a far cry from the type of caboose used today by the [j Milwaukee Road.

Modern cabooses in contrast are of all steel construction. They are equipped with electric generators for radio, lighting, refrigeration and cooking, And they have the latest type oil heaters. The cupola, projecting from the roof, has been replaced by bay windows where crews get a better view of their trains. Caboose No. 0774 had been in service out of the Twin Cities. From Milwaukee it was moved in a main line freight train to LaCrosse and then on to Austin. Although reconditioned, none of the old time flavor has been lost, Arthur Beauvais, trainmaster, said. Seats in the cupola have been reconditioned, to look like new as they were in 1910. Crews would sit In these elevated chairs and keep a watch on the road ahead, looking for "hot boxes" or obstructions. Carrying through with realism, the hand rails are painted white for maximum visibility. Plans are now being made to move the caboose out to the Fairgrounds. More track must first be laid and the 1004 moved ahead to make room for the "crummy."
