      Hi - The caboose at Dutch Flat is a Towle Brothers Lumber Company caboose or
      crummy. It's the only piece of intact rolling stock from that railroad aside
      from several 0-4-0 Porters that also operated on that line. The NCNG caboose
      is at the NCNG museum in Nevada City. This caboose is a replica of the
      original. See ncngrrmuseum.org for further details.
