The Best Seats In The House

After a loooooong and very quick drive early in the Spring to Fairfield Iowa, we acquired two very sought after pieces for our restoration….two seats to put in the cupola. The original seats were scrapped at some point in her journey and were very hard to find, but are a very important part to the working job of the caboose. Amazingly, after a lot of interesting google searches, we were able to find the rail scrap yard that has some available. After being carefully taken apart and remastered, they are ready to go up as soon as the restoration work is done on the interior of the cupola. What a wonderful view to read, or do homework, or just relax and watch some winter snowfalls! More pictures of the seat restoration process coming soon.
