Caboose #3171

Display #18 UP 3171 was built in 1923 and retired in 1966.  It is a standard UP class "CA-1" wood caboose and is typical of cabooses that the UP would have used on the Boulder Branch.  CA-1's could be found at the end of UP freight trains into the 1960's.  Following its retirement, #3171 was used to promote the Montbello Business Park along I-70 east of Denver from 1967 to the early 1980's.  #3171 was donated to the BCRHS in 2001 and is painted "Armour Yellow", the standard color for UP cabooses after World War II.
