Welcome Home, Caboose #507!
Oregon & California Caboose #507
In 2015, the Willamette Heritage Center was offered a unique treasure – 1909 Oregon & California Caboose #507. Since its retirement, the Caboose has rested in a forest outside of Eugene, Oregon. The property owner offered the caboose to the WHC in hopes that it could be restored and preserved as a symbol of the Willamette Valley’s past. After several years of preparation and coordination, it finally arrived in Salem on Friday, July 28th, 2017.
