Some great news, some not-so-great news.

The Caboose is tentatively coming home this week! I talked to the shipper and he has a load going to Louisville early Wednesday morning, and said either Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning the haul to TN will happen. He wants to move it during daylight hours so we can see if any parts go flying off or if it starts to disintegrate on the trip. Hopefully the frame holds up for the loading onto his trailer. The fellow seems quite knowledgeable and has a lot of experience moving antique vehicles of all sorts so I have faith it will arrive in one piece.

On a not-such-great-news front, I am now officially a victim of credit card theft. I got a call from the fraud division late Thursday, and a follow-up call to my bank Friday morning confirmed that the card had been cancelled, but not before someone went on a shopping spree in Paris, France, effectively cleaning out and overdrawing the checking account the card was attached to. The charges started hitting my account today, so tomorrow I get to try and deal with getting the proper forms for getting my money back faxed here so I can fill them out and fax them back. What joy! I'm just glad I have more than one checking account so I'm not flat broke for the rest of the month.


  1. Good luck with the haul of your trailer. I sure hope it makes it without parts flying off going down the road. It is such an interesting trailer.
    I am sorry about your credit card problems.

  2. I am a member of Vintage Shasta Forums and I saw your thread on there. I'm not sure how to get in contact with you but I posted some information on the Caboose Trailer on your forum thread. It is from a 1973 Trailer Travel magazine article. Hope you get a chance to check it out and good luck with the hauling your trailer.
