When we were talking to the owners of the Norfolk Southern Railroad about acquiring the Depot, they offered the Clive Caboose to us. At that time, the railroads were doing away with using a caboose at the end of trains and they didn’t need it any more. Since we were interested in the Depot as a museum, they thought we might be interested in having the Caboose for our “historical park.” They were correct! Cabooses are really hard to find and so we are very lucky to have one. It fits in very nicely with our “railroad” history for the City of Clive.
