Our Caboose is a 1914 Canadian Pacific Railway Caboose built in the Angus Yards located in Montreal, Quebec. It has a wood frame on a steel base, it was acquired by the museum from an anonymous donor and moved to the museum on August 16, 2019. It was placed on 85 feet of track built by volunteers. During the summers of 2020 and 2021 it underwent extensive restoration with new exterior tongue and groove siding being installed, a new roof and new tongue and groove installed in the interior. In addition it was painted to match the exact exterior colours that 1914 CPR cabooses had.
It is currently open for visitors to tour, with only minor restoration work left to be completed.
This restoration project would not have been possible without the Manitoba Government's Building Sustainable Community's grant, the support of the R.M of Thompson, as well as the numerous donors who supported the numerous fundraisers we held.
