M-K-T / Katy Caboose||
Wood Shealth Caboose - Series 896-907
P. Coughlin / R. Jackson Collection, Ray Yard April, 1965
The 896-907 series cars were
the last wood sheathed built by the Katy. Underframes from old Katy boxcars were used in their
construction at the Denison Cars Shops in 1942-43. Four groups of these
caboose, numbers 821-907 were built beginning on 1937. All were similar with some having
fishbelly-type underframes and Andrews trucks replacing the archbar types of earlier cars.
