My Oddity UP Police Caboose
Author: rosevillebill

Hello

The following picture is my entry into the oddity contest.

Back in May 2001, I took this photo of the UP police caboose as it was departing Roseville Yard on the Folsom Local.

Kind of ironic isn't it. The police caboose got tagged!

The graffitti on the caboose just about say's it all.

No caption required on this one guys!

The last time I saw this caboose, the offending graffitti had been cleaned up.

For the benefit of us image-challenged Heritage Members, what does it say?

I've always thought that a roof-mounted lightbar from a police car would be a great addition to this caboose.

Okay, I'll go back to sleep now.

The cartoon balloon says "stop vandals"

Hello Guy's

I am sorry about the lack of clarity in the photo.
The image is sharp when viewed as a photo, it's just the photo editor I use, slightly blurred the image when I reduced the file size down.

I can't seem to find that happy medium between sharp images and reasonable file sizes.


The little policeman on the caboose say's "STOP VANDELS".

Looks like Mr.Zip from the old Post Office Dept days.
