PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:

Perhaps one of the most recognizable icons of American railroading, the caboose completed the train. Cabooses provide shelter for crew at the end of a train, who were long required for switching and shunting, and to keep a lookout for load shifting, damage to equipment and cargo, and overheating axles. In the cupola caboose, the cupola projected above the top of the car roof. The cupola allowed the crew to see past the top of the taller cars that began to appear after World War II.
