FRISCO

At this time we know very little about this caboose other than it came from the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway. The line drawing is of a class which could include this caboose. Our caboose when we got it was stripped on the inside and clad with non-original siding so it has been converted to use as a birthday party caboose complete with heat and air conditioning.
