CABOOSE ROSTER

The VBR had all of three cabooses. Number one was built from a box car and was used till the 40's. Number two was a former Southern wood hack. It was red with Virginia Blue Ridge in yellow on the side. Number three replaced number two around 1959-1960. It was also former Southern...a bay-window type. It was painted green and had no lettering for a while, then VBR in stencil, and finally Virginia Blue Ridge spelled out. The cabs never had their numbers displayed since none were used at the same time...each replaced the previous. Number one rotted away on the property, Number two almost did. It was sold to a railfan in Rapidan, and the last time I saw it, was still rotting away in front of the old Rapidan Depot. Number three was sold to Mississippi Export Railroad.
