The Whippany Railway Museum has several cabooses that we use on our excursion trains. They range in age up to 100 years old. There are two basic models, the familiar cupola caboose with its distinctive “bubble top” as seen in the right hand picture, and the bay window version with its extended windows on the sides. Each caboose holds approximately 15 passengers. Please note that this seating option is not available on the Easter Bunny Express trains.
