Re: ATSF 1300-Series Wood Cabooses

Thanks Andy & all, for the links & info.

I guess I had found a photo on the SF-HS site of the 1300 series, under Links-Waycars-Caboose Photos by Don Ross, of #1430 in Chicago, ILL July 1969. I didn't know that it was of the 1300-series.

Looks like the Santa Fe had at least 131 cabooses of the 1300-series. What was the complete series numbers?

Hello Paul,

The only changes were to the lettering. The ampersand was omitted beginning in 1938 (A.T.S.F.) and the periods were omitted (ATSF) beginning in 1943. The windows, three on one side and four on the other, stayed the same. There are photos of a caboose of this series on the Santa Fe society Web site at<>

Happy Thanksgiving,
