some did haul LCL freight.

When a conductor on the UN Pac listed his loads and empties in his train, he always counted his caboose as a load.
As did the SOU and T&NO for internal reporting - indeed, I suspect that most roads considered cabooses as loads, but, for ICC Statistical Reporting, Caboose Miles were separated from Other Loaded Freight Car Miles.
