With reference to your inquiry regarding the caboose at Palmdale...I work near there and can photograph it to save you a trip. It's in extremely poor condition. Being unfamiliar with the work needed for it's restoration, I can't comment on it's potential. Let me know if you'd be interested in photographs of it. Rick Walls

I think there is still a caboose sitting at Palmdale, Fl. North of LaBelle about 15 miles. It may be easy to get, as it has been there for a while, and isn't being maintained.
