The New Caboose

The caboose which sits next to the Train Depot recently received a new coat of red paint, and I have to say that it is looking really good. In fact, it looks brand new. Here are some photos taken while it was being painted:

I’ve been taking my kids to the Train Depot since my oldest son was a baby. Now it’s one of my youngest son’s favorite places to visit in Shepherd. I really appreciate the resources and effort that are going into freshening up the look of the caboose.
