Manufacturer Morrison International (Details)
Era Era III: Transition (1939 - 1957)

History: This caboose was designed by the Morrison International shop in Kenton, Ohio. Because of the great variety of equipment needs between railroads in the 1950's, International developed the idea of a "modular" caboose design. This conceptual design essentially broke the caboose down on paper into different types or styles that could be built to meet the specific needs of a particular railroad. Rather than trying to force a rigid, fixed design on all the railroads, International felt it better to let the railroad select the pieces to build the caboose to their own liking.

Railroad/Company: This company was based in Kenton, Ohio. They also had a plant in Buffalo, NY. Morrison International seems to have built railway cars only from 1960 to 1964, at which time it was sold to Ryder.
