But very few - mostly local freights on remote lines.

Cabooses, buggies, hacks, vans, etc.. may have been on the tail end of most Steam Era Freight Trains. The problem, however, for a list such as the STMFC is that most roads used their own designs; thus, a discussion about a certain type of caboose would be of interest to only modelers of that specific road. For best results, questions about cabooses should be addressed to adherents of the specific road; the chance of getting a correct answer should be greater than from the list of STMFC members.

PS - If you have a question about a B&M buggy from 1900-1959, you can address it to me or the BM Yahoo Group at http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/BM_RR .
