- Frank & Listers,
> > The caboose is easy to get to, I drove up to it the other day.
> > The COTS panel says built 5/71 and C&O.
> > It is 727, painted a yellowish color, not in service.
> > Ex-B&O, bay window, Crandic 727(2), Hawkeye Downs, 6th st. SW, Cedar Rapids, IA.
> The build date would indicate it was a B&O Class C-26 C-3700-3827 series
> caboose built by International Car, Kenton, Ohio. It may have its
> number painted on the center sill (beam).
> The C&O indicates it was serviced at a C&O facility which was quite
> common after C&O's takeover of the B&O.
> Thanks, Roger
