I wondered when I took this picture if my viewfinder was accurate. This picture teaches me that it skews to the left. I had very carefully framed it from just beyond the coupler on the right to just beyond the gift shop on the left. Now I need to frame a little bit to the right of the scene I want. (Why did I cut it so close you ask? I was running out of parking lot and the ends of this scene aren't exactly critical so it made a good test subject.) The snow plow has its own MoW posting.

A street view indicates that they vary the cars featured by the parking lot except that it probably always includes the "billboard caboose."
Hockey Valley Railroad between Logan and Nellsonville, OH.
I deliberately included the water spout in the photo below because it is the first time I have seen one preserved. I have seen preserved wooden water tanks and pictures of standpipes, but this is the only one I currently know of that still exists. I carefully positioned the pipe between the cabooses to obstruct the couplers rather than the paint schemes.
All Caboose Train. So they have some more preserved cabooses.
Some of the cabooses have an "owned by" indication on them. So evidently they will store, maybe even maintain, your caboose for you if you let them use it in their train.
The is a close up of the caboose cut. It also includes part of the two galley commuter cars that they have in storage. But it appears the galley cars need some TLC (tender loving care) before they can be put into service.
