Re: Texas City Shay


When the caboose was still in Texas City they attached wood panel siding to the exterior steel sides thus covering all the windows.I suppose they did that to cut down on vandalism.The plybead paneling gives the appearance of a wood caboose but with no windows.The doors have been welded shut.Now that it is back at Galveston RR. Museum I hope they will remove the wood siding to display it as originally built.I believe it is a SP or TNO model C40-3 caboose.
