The Last Place you'd expect to see a Train

While on a recent hunting trip ( Hunting for things to photograph ) We chanced upon an unusual sight. Passing thru the small town of Spring Bay on Route 26 we saw a train caboose in a man's front yard.

According to the property owner, John Yankovich (sp) the caboose, wearing the colors of the Toledo, Peoria & Western railroad, was given to the previous owner of the property for free and he spent several thousand dollars having it moved to his home and placed in the yard.

The current owner uses it for storage right now but is open to selling it sometime in the future. Bring lots of money though, even one in a junkyard is Nine thousand dollars. Many thanks to John for coming out and telling us this little slice of forgotten history!
