Caboose 81532 has been in French Lick since it was donated to us by the Seaboard System Railroad’s President Richard D. Sandborn on September 8, 1985. In a thank you letter sent to the Seaboard System by Society President Don Kaegebein, we agreed to “display and maintain the condition of the car in a manner fully befitting the Seaboard System Railroad.”


Recently, we have not kept up our end of the bargain.

Although scrapping of the former Indiana Transportation Museum equipment has started this week in Logansport, word has come down through official circles, that Monon box car #1220 will soon be going to the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson.  Let's hope that the folks scrapping the equipment there at Logansport, get the message!

Ho Scale Monon / Monon 70 ton 2 bay covered hopper
« Last Post by Les Beckman on April 29, 2021, 10:46:24 am »
I recently picked up an HO gauge Bowser covered hopper (C.I.L. # 4212) which shows both the BUILT DATE and NEW as 12 4x.  Not sure why the second number was left off the kit.  Does anyone know when these cars were built?  1940 or 1949, or where in between?  Thanks!

George -

We will find a suitable job for anyone who volunteers.  In addition to the DS-50, we are also restoring Monon transfer caboose # 81551.
