TRAIN CABOOSE AT WATKINS PARK – DONATIONS WELCOME FOR HISTORIC PROJECT

Posted on by Mt. Airy

The Mount Airy Caboose is a model I-5 D, Baltimore & Ohio caboose dating between 1925 and 1929. it is 1 of 400 cabooses built by the B&O during that time period and was built in either Baltimore, MD or Washington, IN. These I-5D cabooses were the last of the wooden “cupola” style for the B&O as they went to steel construction and Bay Window style in the 1930s. The caboose most likely saw service through 13 states and was used as a “pusher” caboose for steep grades throughout the Appalachian mountains. As a “pusher” caboose it was constructed with a concrete floor to provide the necessary strength to allow ebing pushed by an engine and therefore weighs in at a hefty 49,000 lbs (35,000 for the body and 7,000 for each set of trucks).

Caboose C-2095 was retired in 1978, and then traveled to a car dealership in Brunswick, MD. A few years later is arrived at a convenience store in Frederick, MD. It was relocated to Grimes Trucking Company in Frederick for a spell, then ended up on a farm in Mount Airy, MD. It sat on the farm until recently when the Scranton family donated c-2095 to the Mount Airy Community Fund. “Digging and Rigging” of Frederick County moved the caboose pro bono to get the project started.

The Caboose is slated to be moved to a Restoration Facility in July 2014 and will then return to Mount Airy as a showpiece of Mount Airy’s railroad history and serve as a visitor’s center. Donations are being accepted for the restoration project by any and all interested parties.

The Caboose is currently located at Watkins Park, 615 Center Street in Mount Airy. Once it is restored  the caboose will return to Mount Airy as a showpiece of Mount Airy’s railroad history and serve as a visitor’s center. It will be located next to Main Street along the Rails to Trails Corridor.

DONATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE RESTORATION OF THE B&O CABOOSE C-2095

Checks may be made out to:

The Mount Airy Community Fund
