Caboose 90950 was built in 1929. A caboose is usually the last car on a freight train and is used by the train crew. This caboose has a wood-burning stove for cooking and heat, an ice box for food storage, and three bunk beds. Train crews sometimes refer to their caboose as their "crummy".
Caboose 90950 was donated to Au Glaize Village by the
Chessie System in 1975. It was restored by members of
the Au Glaize Village Railroad Club.
