As you step into the Wild Wild West Caboose you are transported back in time to when the Clear Lake area had prospectors and cowboys roaming the expansive hills and enjoying the beautiful crystal clear waters.

Wild Wild West History
Wild Wild West started its life as a Caboose on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe rail line. For those who remember the caboose man perched up high, you can enjoy this experience today in the Wild Wild West. The second-story cupola has two seats which are the perfect spot to watch the sun rise or set with a cool beverage or some hot coffee. The view is great from up there!
This caboose is part of Class CE-1, 315 cars rebuilt from much older cars for systemwide service by the West Wichita (Kansas) shops between October 1966 and March 1968. They were rebuilt in no particular order from three series: 1650-series (AC&F, 1928) , 2200-series (AT&SF, 1948), and 500-series (AT&SF, 1949). Many Santa Fe cabooses had round roofs but some had peaked roofs. I don't know if that's a distinguishing feature of the earlier series or if there is some other way to tell if a given CE-1 was originally built by AC&F or Santa Fe's own shops.
