D&H Bay-Window Caboose No. 35730

Delaware & Hudson Bay-Window Steel Caboose #35730

This steel “bay-window” caboose was one of seven such cars built by the International Car Company of Kenton, Ohio in February 1968 for the Delaware & Hudson Railway (D&H), “The Bridge Line To New England And Canada.” Originally delivered in a bright yellow and blue color scheme, the paint on this series of cars weathered poorly and all were later repainted red in the early 1970s.

In the mid-1990s, the D&H sold several of its bay-window cabooses to NJ TRANSIT (NJT). Upon arrival in New Jersey, they were soon refitted for NJT work train service.

NJT donated this car (ex-NJT No. 905) to the Whippany Railway Museum in 2007, and it has been restored to its as-delivered 1968 appearance by Museum volunteers.

Today the bright yellow caboose is a hit on the Museum’s Caboose Trains!
