Chet French would probably have more detailed info but the wooden Wabash cabooses that looked very much like a Mopac caboose were known by railroaders and fans as the "Twenty-Six Hundreds". They were numbered 2600 to 2654 with the first twenty five cars build by American Car & Foundry and the balance by the Wabash. This is per a special Banner caboose magazine issue wrtitten by Dr. C.C. Drake, Jr., back in 1994. If you have an interest in critical dimensions for comparisons I can provide those here too. They were built from 1925 to 1927.
