Equipment Information

CGW 601 is a standard railroad caboose designed for general freight service over the CGW system in Illinois and Iowa. It has a centered cupola on the roof to provide the conductor better visibility over his train. Its design echoes that of cabooses built for railroads in the northeast, where clearances were shorter, giving it a lower profile than many railroad cabooses used in the Midwest.
