    I have also wondered why it had the unusual coonskin. Also I wonder if anyone knows why this caboose had Rockwell high speed trucks ? I have not seen any others with Rockwell trucks.

    I am currently away from my ” library”, but I have seen that caboose somewhere else. In one of our photo books like Nick Molos book, or maybe Frisco in color, vol. 1. MYbe some one else can check before I get back from the Scottish Festival in Buffalo, Mo.

    On Dr. Condren’s site, caboose # 239 also has this unusual coonskin, although it is located below the cupola. I certainly could have overlooked the 1200 in the books Dan mentioned, but I didn’t see it in either of them or in “Frisco in Color 2”.
