Cabooses (4 of 5)
Gilbert made 27 distinct cabooses, some of which had numerous variations, and Lionel made 37 more up through 2006.  Because there are so many, I have split them up over five web pages:

Gilbert Cabooses #630 through #930 are on
page 1
                         #934 through #24627 are on
page 2
                         #24630 through #25052, plus the unnumbered Game Train caboose, are on
page 3
Lionel Cabooses  #9400 through #48715 are on this page
                         #48718 and above are on
page 5

Unless otherwise specified, the large pictures on this page are of cars in the collection of The Upstairs Train.

If you have a picture that you would like to share with the world of any of the cars not shown here (or a better picture of one that is shown!), email them to me: theupstairstrain@yahoo.com
