BLU-24421 – Transfer Caboose: Great Northern # X180 -Think Safety Work Safely
Great Northern built a group of transfer cabooses at their St. Cloud Shops in 1967 (just before the move from Vermilion to Sky Blue.) Unlike other railroads that used the frames from old boxcars or flat cars, GN used the frames from scrapped Baldwin VO-1000 switchers. GN used a series of 10 safety slogans on their cabooses with the last digit in the road number determining which slogan was used.
