NAR CABOOSE 13002

NAR Caboose 13002 was built by the Canadian Car & Foundry in Montreal in 1926 for the Edmonton Dunvegan & British Columbia Railway, which later became the Northern Alberta Railways (NAR). Early cabooses were simple affairs with few comforts. They began when conductors started using boxcars as offices and storerooms. Cabooses were later outfitted with more comfortable bunks and other amenities, including circular side curtains, an ice-block fridge, oil-burning furnace and stove, lights and a hot plate.
