Pennsylvania Railroad N5Project: Equipment
Serving as the FVRR headquarters, this former Pennsylvania Railroad N5 caboose sees regular service on the Valley Railroad the first weekend of each month when it’s open to the public, as well as for “Caboose Birthday” charters. This caboose, or cabin car, was a gift to the Friends of Valley Railroad from Bill Stoddard in 1992.
In 1996, the FVRR completed a thorough mechanical and cosmetic restoration of the caboose inside and out. It has proven to be extremely popular with Essex Steam Train patrons.
