Caboose and Mural - Smithville, Ohio
Author: refarkas

Here are four more June 18, 2022 photos from the Smithville, Ohio Pioneer Village display. Yesterday I posted images of the depot. Today there are photos of the ex-B&O caboose and the Smithville mural.
1.) The ex-B&O caboose (I could not find its original number.
2.) Another caboose view.
3.) The complete mural.

Are you sure that is an ex B&O caboose? It looks more like a C&O car, but I stand to be corrected.

The Pioneer Village website lists this as an ex-B&O caboose, so I posted it with this information.

It probably started life as a Hocking Valley caboose, absorbed into C&O and wore B&O markings in its last days.

That sounds like a possibility. A car number might be on the center sill, axles or inside the car.
