Description:
The author briefly describes the history of the Reading Railroad. He then continues with the history of the all-steel cabooses built by the Reading Shops to allow steam engines to push the train behind those cabooses, rather than to first have to remove the wooden cabooses. The rest of the article is about how A.C. Gilbert produced a model of that caboose, and also the Reading bay window caboose. The article includes a scaled drawing.
