The 1929 Delmar Pennsylvania Railroad Caboose

Members of the Delmar Historical and Arts Society are working on the caboose in Delmar.
 
It had a number of rotten boards.
 
 
The Delmar 1929 Penna Railroad caboose arrived in June of 1976 in time for the National Bicentennial.  The caboose cost in 1976 $1,000 and the money was raised by fundraising events and the sale of cookbooks.  
 
This wasp nest was an exciting find when the rotten board was pulled off. 
 
 
 
So it still requires a repaint job in order to be ready for Delmar Heritage Days out in September.
