Since its founding in 2018, refurbishing our circa 1951 caboose has been a goal of the Garner Area Historical Society. Our dream is to restore the inside of the caboose to its original condition when it served as a working railcar. We feel that seeing this car as it appeared when in use would enhance the visitor experience to the Garner History Museum at the Depot.
An estimate from a railcar restoration professional puts the cost at approximately $10,000.
