I wasn't sure if I should've posted this in the prototype forums or not. I'm sure the Powers That Be(tm) will gladly move this if I'm in the wrong spot! Do short-line railroads use their own caboose? I'm modeling the 1950's with my freelanced road, and it is mostly based on interchange traffic...hauling for other railroads. I'm trying to be as prototypic as possible, using the "what if" scenario by using what might have happened if my railroad actually existed. I was just wondering what the common practice might have been. Thanks guys!
