The Ringgold Trailway caboose was acquired in 1979 from the Burlington Northern Railroad. It is a 1940’s model caboose and has been a fixture of the Ringgold Trailway for over 30 years. In 2014, Ringgold County Conservation began renovation efforts of the caboose due to the severe deterioration of the structure. Any original piece that could be salvaged was left on the caboose, including the interior bunks. The final touches were completed in 2015, making the caboose a safe structure for the public to once again enjoy.
