Caboose motel. Sleep in a Caboose

In a picturesque mountain setting, the Railroad Park Resort has grouped two loose squares of completely renovated cabooses around a pool. There's a restaurant in a set of dining cars. You can also "explore relics such as the 1893 Wells Fargo Car, the wooden snowplow, restored water tank and gear-driven steam logging locomotive."

The couple who created it started collecting and renovating in 1968 and opened the caboose lodgings to the public in 1986. [This photo is from our visit in the late 1990s].
