      Bloominghton, IN, reported to have gone to the MH&TS;

      81501 - steel, cupola, US 421, Harlan, KY;

      81503 - steel, cupola, Hwy. 17, San Mateo, FL, *for sale*;

      81504 - steel, cupola, John C. Coulter, Hwy. 300, Parksville, KY; &

            Hi Ryan, Once you digest and incorporate the information that folks have sent to you, be sure to post the revised list here so we can make a second pass of it

              Hi Ryan,

              Once you digest and incorporate the information that folks have sent to you,
              be sure to post the revised list here so we can make a second pass of it to
              see if we can add more information.

              If/when you repost the listings, I suggest you list the wood cabooses first
              and then the steel cabooses in the order of the 81500 series numbers.

              Cheers, Roger
