Once you've got the cabooses to the location where you want them, the next trick is getting them off the truck and to their permanent home. First, you lay track according to Federal guidelines. Then you place the wheels.
Then you get the best crane operator you can find to lift the cabooses off the Low Boy and onto the wheels on the track. This crane operator has to be good enough to miss tree limbs, bushes, electrical wires and even the guy who might want to stand under the caboose while it's in the air!
To turn a caboose into a permanent building you weld the wheels to the track and then bring in plumbing, electrical and gas. Now you've got a permanent building.
The next step is to take an empty, rusty metal "building" and turn it into a unique guest suite with all the amenities. We're still working on that side of the story and hope to get pictures, but we'll be happy to show you how a caboose looked before it became a suite - we have one left like that hidden away in the back.
We also get a good number of people interested in buying a caboose and you can get your very own rail car through a company called RailMerchants. There is also a company that makes replica caboose kits which are pretty slick.
