Backyard Caboose

Sitting in the back yard of a house on Station Street and 6th Avenue in St. Anne is a random caboose.

[Corey Jackson, 12/12/2017]

The caboose was moved to the neighborhood in the 1950s when the house was owned by Donald Nussbaum, who worked for the railroad. Later homeowners have restored the caboose at least twice, but it hasn't moved for 60 years.
