Wood Cupola Caboose  Contributor's Pick!       
After looking at photos and personally inspecting this caboose, I am convinced it is a former N&W CF class caboose. The windows have been rearranged, but the ends, steps, and notched roof ends all say "N&W CF class".

Larry Platt General If one compares pictures of N&W "CF" class cabooses that were fitted with the power hand brakes, one will be convinced that this is a former N&W "CF" class caboose. Having said that, a number of these cabooses were sold to GEORGIA CAR & FOUNDRY, who may have resold them to the CofG. The SEABOARD AIR LINE bought a few of these N&W "CF" class cabooses. According to the N&W Caboose Book, none were sold directly to the CofG.. 5/22/2014 12:07:58 AM
