GM&O? Unknown
Title:  GM&O? Unknown
Description:  This caboose predates Roger Kirkpatrick's first Captive Cabeese In America book. It was used as a drive-in teller at the City National Bank along with a heavy weight observation car named "Dothan" and heavy weight baggage car. The bank resembled a railroad station. The bank and all the cars are gone today. The location of the cars is unknown. See http://trojan.troy.edu/community/wiregrass-archives/inventories/146.html for pictures of the caboose before installation at the bank. Do a FIND on "City National Bank"
