Interior

                               Below is the interior of a standard Northern Pacific wooden caboose used in the early 1900s

On the left is the front left side of the caboose. There is a bed, one of 5 beds on the caboose.  On the wall is where flares and torpedoes are kept

On the other side  is the front right with 2 beds.  On the wall is potable water with a sink that drains straight down.

Below the beds tools and parts are kept for emergency on the road repairs.

Between the kerosene lamps a table folds down for dining or other purposes.

 

On the left is the rear left side of the caboose.  Above the bed is a workspace not a bed.  This is where the brakemen would watch bearings.

On the other side is the conductor's desk.  To the right is a coal stove and a coal bin.  To the left and under the cupola is a pantry and a real icebox.

Behind the kitchen is the bathroom; yes there is no running water here.
