Train and history aficionados alike won’t want to miss the grand opening and ribbon-cutting for the newly restored 1929 caboose at the Kyle Railroad Depot & Heritage Center. The wooden caboose has been in the restoration phase for almost a year.
Before radios and air brakes, train conductors, brakemen, and flagmen rode in the caboose to look for signs of trouble on the tracks. The caboose also served as an office for the train conductor.
Join the Kyle Railroad Depot & Heritage Center volunteers on October 12 at 10 a.m. for a tour and enjoy cake, coffee, and music by the Silver Mine String Band. The Depot is located at 100 N. Front Street, Kyle.
