T&P Rolling Stock - Caboose 2561


Texas & Pacific #2561 joined MoPac's roster originally as road caboose MP 13124 with the merger of the two rail lines. Built by T&P in May, 1952, then rebuilt again in 1969, the sturdy all-steel caboose finally was renumbered for local service as #12124. The TP designed cabooses outlived many of their MoPac counterparts. 6/8/96 - T. Greuter Photo John C. La Rue, Jr.
