CSX 904094 caboose
Author: SouthBuffalo1

Caught CSX caboose 904094 on the end of a rail train at Frontier yard in Buffalo today. Some of the pictures I have seen on line of this caboose show the other sides windows plated over. Wonder why? What does RAPU1 designate?

I don't know what those letters mean, but it probably has something to do with it being a so called "shoving platform." What a shame it also has that damn graffiti on it. They no longer keep these cars in a secured area in many places any more.

Judging by the door on the boxcar ahead of it I am guessing this was on a rail train, or some sort of MOW train. RAPU usually has something to do with Rail Pick Up Unit. They usually all have cabooses for long shove moves in MOW service when picking up or dropping off rail.
