SCL Caboose by Mike Saunders

The old railway passenger station is still in use today. It no longer serves as a platform for passengers to embark onto or disembark off of trains but is used for community functions. A caboose from the old Seaboard Coast Line stands in a small park next door to the old station.The old freight terminal is now a local pharmacy.

Across the street from the passenger terminal is the old downtown. The buildings are all old brick, some colorfully painted and still decorated with old advertizing and other signs. A few of the buildings are still in use.

Hi Mike, that old red caboose is eye candy to me, I used to travel by train quite a bit as a youngster! Nice to know the old passenger terminal is still being used today.

I travel restoring railroad cars and came upon this caboose by accident yesterday. I did a uturn to go back and take a look. It is in fantastic shape for preservation. If you happen to know of who I might talk to about helping preserve this caboose I'd like to talk with them. Or my number is 724 813 2614.
