WRHS Restoration Funds



The WRHS is always happy to receive both monetary and "sweat equity" contributions to our Caboose 2824 restoration project. As info, this caboose resides and now owned by  the Monticello Railway Museum in Illinois. The WRHS has finished restoring this caboose to its ca. 1962 glory (including installation of repro Wabash-built cupboards & cabinetry), and the recently-repainted caboose was officially rededicated during our Annual Meeting in Sept. 2015.
