Arcade in Wyoming County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
This early 20th century caboose is on loan from the family of Earl R. Rule. Mr. Rule purchased the caboose in 1980 from the Arcade & Attica Railroad. He spent many hours restoring the caboose so that people could enjoy and appreciate this historical piece of railroad history. Our thanks to the Rule family, who has allowed us to include this caboose in our railroad equipment display. Thanks also to the Village of Arcade for allowing us to have our display in their property.
