Sleep in a Caboose

Field review by the editors.

Titusville, Pennsylvania

There are a number of motels scattered across the U.S.A. that provide the peculiar thrill of sleeping in a caboose. The train's famous tail-end is now a historical artifact -- phased out decades ago. But this collection of 21 is a virtual caboose retirement village, densely packed and near a still operating train attraction.

The Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad Caboose Motel opened in 2005; the cabooses had been acquired from an earlier Titusville caboose motel (Casey's Caboose Stop).

Some of the cabooses.

They are set in two long lines on parallel tracks next to Titusville's old Perry Street Station. There are red cabooses, teal cabooses, white cabooses, yellow cabooses, cabooses with cupolas and cabooses with bay windows. The rooms have been refurbished with modern bathrooms, beds, air conditioners, coffee makers, etc. Each caboose is provided with a deck and deck chairs so that you can enjoy the view -- of the other cabooses.

An adjacent historic train -- the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad -- offers a 2 1/2 hour tour on June-October weekends of "Oil Heritage Country."
