Equipment Information

Pennsylvania Railroad 476199 is a rare example of a four-wheel caboose known as a “bobber.” Small cabooses like this were uncommon after about 1930 but this ND-class caboose (or “cabin car” as the PRR called cabooses) remained in service into the 1950s. It has a centered cupola on the roof to provide the conductor better visibility over his train.
