No problem. I just wanted everyone on the same page. It wasn't clear which caboose we were talking about.

Here is a shot of the original Lost Parents, although it doesn't give much idea at all where it was located.

The view is standing near the front gate and looking roughly South East.
This would be near where the Modern Ice Cream Store is now.

The original caboose was being stored next to the softball field when I left the park. I'm not sure what happened too it after Titan was built.

I went inside that once, while on work crew, just to see what was in it. It was filled with stacks and stacks of old, musty, mildewey clothes. Presumably old uniforms. But the place smelled so bad of urine that I didn't get more than a glance before I closed the door and never went back in.
