Caboose To Be Moved

Malcolm Peacock's caboose is due to be moved to the Village Historique Acadien in Caraquet, according to this Times Transcript article. They have built a replica train station and will now have a caboose to put in front of it.

Malcolm died in August 2009 and his family was looking to dispose of his caboose. I'm glad it is going to a good home.

I stayed overnight in that caboose a few times when volunteering at the New Brunswick Railway Museum in Hillsborough. Malcolm was very proud of the caboose and kept it in good shape. He often brought museum visitors through it, even though it was his private caboose and not the museum's.
