The caboose at Miner Park in Glen Carbon Caboose: In 1977 another unusual enterprise was undertaken by about 35 of our versatile citizenry. A railroad caboose had been donated by the community for display in Miner Park. The caboose was delivered to a siding near the old No. 2 Mine site. Getting the caboose to Miner Park would prove to be quite a project. First the site at the park had to be made ready. It had to be levelled, a rock bed prepared, ties laid, and rails anchored. It was amazing to see how steel workers, office workers, construction workers and retirees could manage this kind of work. Unknown December 8, 2016
