1897 Caboose

This caboose was donated to Grey Roots in 2016 by Robert and Darren King. It originally served as a box car before being converted to a caboose. After 1919, it was owned and operated by the Canadian National Railway (later CN).

Railroads and railcars like this played a significant role in Grey County’s history as they provided an excellent solution to facilitate transport of lumber and mineral resources as well as serving as passenger transportation.
