This faded and peeling yellow caboose sits quietly next to the historic water tower in Gant. I was told the caboose is where the conductor rode along with the brakeman. Modern technology made the brakeman’s job obsolete and the caboose was no longer needed. That is why you see so many cabooses ( or is it caboosi or caboosen or whatever the plural is for caboose) sitting in retirement around the state.
P.S. if you want to know more about the water tower you can see my post HERE
