Help Us Acquire the SLSF #1232 Caboose

 

The Fort Smith Trolley museum is dedicated to the preservation and restoration (although sometimes only cosmetic) of streetcars and other pieces of rail equipment.  When an opportunity arises to add to our collection of cabooses, we like to be able to take advantage of this.
 
We have been offered the St. Louis and San Francisco Caboose #1232 to add to our collection.  This caboose is located just outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The only obstacle we have is to raise the money to load, transport, and unload the caboose at the museum.  The caboose is not track ready to be moved by rail, so it will need to be trucked on a flatbed trailer to the museum.  There it will need to be unloaded by crane and placed on the tracks.
 
The estimated cost to do this endeavor is $8,000.  This amount should be able to include the loading of the caboose in Tulsa, transportation of the caboose and trucks to Fort Smith, purchase of new ties to place under the rail where the caboose will sit, and unload and reassembly of the caboose on the rail at the museum.

The Fort Smith Streetcar Restoration Association is dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of electric powered streetcars, railroad equipment, transportation and other technology that existed during this period in history, and to providing a unique educational experience to the visiting public.
