Re: Atomic Waste Shipments 1950s


The Santa Fe modified a couple of drover cabooses for the AEC to serve as guard cars.

One is preserved in Barstow at the Mojave River Valley Museum and another at the S. Calif RR Museum (OERM).

And the 9792 is now at the Illinois Railway Museum :-)

In 1956 the IC modified two cabooses 9791 and 9792 for the AEC in their Centralia shops.  They were returned to the railroad and the modifications removed in 1960 and the cabooses were placed back into service.

I have no other information on what the modifications were.
