Caboose 1284 Springfield, Missouri in October 1979.
This photograph was taken at the Frisco’s North Yard. The view is looking northeast from the North Jefferson Avenue Footbridge. In the lower left one can see the shadow of the south tower and the curving arch from the south stairs.
The footbridge was constructed in 1902 and is 562 feet long. It was originally constructed to permit access between the Commercial Street Business District (south end) and the residential neighborhood to the north.
Special thanks to Mark Davidson.

This was the last caboose retired wearing Frisco colors, having been retired in September 1991. It was also the last one retired wearing the mandarin and white paint scheme. Burlington Northern didn’t paint it green until it was donated to the City of Saginaw, Texas (were it currently resides).
