The Red Candy Caboose Locations

 
 
 

 

 
 

Hey Kids,

It's Coop from the Red Candy Caboose.  I've made a list of places that have lots of fun stuff about trains.  They are listed by State and hopefully we will run into each other as you help me track special trains and of course keep watching for that very special train car "The Red Candy Caboose."

If I missed any in your neighborhood, send me an e-mail and I'll add them to our list.

Alabama:

  Alabama - Fort Payne Depot Museum (Link currently not available)
Fort Payne, AL - Fort Payne Depot Museum, presented by Landmarks of Dekalb County. Located in Northeast Alabama, our musuem, which is actually a train depot circa late 1800s, contains much more than railroad historical artifacts. Thanks to many donations from estates and businesses, we have artifacts from every war since the Civil War, items from the formation of our city, thousands of Indian artifacts (like arrowheads, baskets, and sculptures), and much more. Listed with the National Register of Historic Places, we are a popular tourist spot just minutes from heavily-visited Mentone and not much farther from cities like Birmingham, Chattanooga, and Atlanta

Thumbnails by Thumbshots.org Alabama - The L&N Depot Museum
The first depot was built on this site in 1905 when the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Line came to Foley. The railroad was once known as the Bay Minette and Fort Morgan Railroad. At that time, logging was an important industry in this area and the railroad was built to help move the timber out of the area.

The first depot that was built in 1905 burned to the ground in 1908. It was rebuilt and served as the center of activity for the community for many years.

In 1971, word was received that L & N was going to discontinue service to Foley and would destroy the building. John Snook, owner of Gulf Telephone Company bought the building for $1.00. He cut the depot and the freight area into two parts and moved them to Magnolia Springs. There it stayed for approximately twenty-four years and served as storage for Gulf Telephone. In the early nineties, Mr. Snook deeded the depot back to the city of Foley. In 1995, it was returned to the original site and renovations were begun to make the depot into a museum for the city.

Some work remains to complete the reassembly of our steam locomotive, SP #2472, after the boiler inspection and repair. We expect to complete this work at Niles Canyon.

When we have a new location that is open to the public, it will be shown on this Web site. We apologize for this (hopefully) temporary inconvenience.

Today the SPCRR is the Society for the Preservation of Carter Railroad Resources, a railroad museum located in Ardenwood Historic Farm Regional Park in Fremont, California close to the Carter Shops in Newark. The SPCRR restores equipment representative of those bygone days. Our collection contains 13 cars from the 1870s and 1880s. Most of the cars were built by the Carter Brothers in Newark. We are actively restoring 3 cars and have four cars in service. We have 1-1/2 miles of track and operate a recreation of the original SPCRRs Centerville Branch at Ardenwood. We use draft horses to pull a 1885 North Pacific Coast RR flatcar set up as a picnic car on scheduled runs through farm fields and Eucalyptus groves.

Thumbnails by Thumbshots.org California - The Centerville Depot
Centerville, CA - The inspiration to preserve the historic depot began with Fremont's petition to bring Amtrak service to Centerville in 1991. The petition worked. On June 4, 1993, Fremont welcomed the return of passenger trains to the Centerville station after an absence of 53 years. In December of 1993, the city of Fremont acquired ownership of the depot itself and began to plan its restoration. Of more than sixty "No. 23"-style depots constructed by Southern Pacific between 1896 and 1916, less than a dozen exist today and the Centerville depot is the only one used in rail passenger service.

Travel Town was dedicated on December 14, 1952. The concept of a combined transportation museum and recreation center blossomed, and wishes for donations were generously fulfilled. In 1965, Travel Town's exhibits were re-grouped, and the park re-dedicated. Today, Travel Town is in a state of new growth and development. Charley Atkins passed away in 1959, but he left Los Angeles a grand legacy at Travel Town.

That's when moving-company owner George Turner began constructing one-sixth-sized buildings with a turn- of-the-century flavor to delight his young daughter.

In 1988, volunteers adopted the resurrection of Tiny Town as a civic, charitable project. Individuals from the entire state refurbished original buildings, created new structures and got the railroad up and running again. The Tiny Town Foundation was created in 1990 to establish Tiny Town as a not-for-profit effort and ensure the cherished village would never be threatened again. Each year the foundations has been proud to donate a portion of the proceeds to various area charities.

They purchased engine # 4 in 1963 and had it stored until 1966 when it was moved to the present location. Track construction was started that year and in 1984 the circle was completed and a final spike ceremony was held celebrating the event. A documentary called "Ironhorse" was filmed from 1983 to 1984 and has been featured on television multiple times. In those years we had many newspaper articles and were shown on local news programs. We have almost a mile of track in a circle so we can run our equipment around. We have over 20 pieces of equipment. We are still out in the country so we have plenty of scenic areas for nice photo's. We have a 1895 Saint Paul And Duluth Railroad depot that is the center of focus in our museum. The depot is where most of the collection of railroad artifacts are located.

Dennison, OH - During W.W.II the Dennison Depot was located on the National Railway Defense Route. It was the main stopping point on the route because it was the exact mid-point between Columbus and Pittsburgh. One evening, Lucille Nussdorfer sat waving good-bye to U.S. soldiers going off to war. She noticed that they seemed sad, so she organized a few other friends to start a GI canteen. The community response was so overwhelming that the Salvation Army soon had to take over. The small towns of Dennison and Uhrichsville served over 1.5 million soldiers during W.W.II. The community became so popular among the soldiers that it was called Dreamsville, USA.

You can visit this beautifully restored Museum today and feel what the G.I.'s felt during the war. Well over One Million Dollars has been spent on the restoration of our museum to preserve it for many generations to come. Join us today for an educational experience into the Past!

Thumbnails by Thumbshots.org Oregon - Sumpter Valley Railway
Baker City, OR - by Brian Fitz
In 1970 a group of Baker County residents got together and formed a preservation society to acquire as much of the remaining equipment of the original Sumpter Valley Railway right of way as possible. They hoped to one day restore a portion of the original line to operation. In 1971 the group was able to purchase 2-truck, wood burning Heisler No. 3 from Boise Cascade. The locomotive had survived all these years in a shed in Cascade ID serving as a backup boiler to a lumber mill until 1969. Rails and ties were donated by the Union Pacific, a couple of flat cars were obtained from the D&RGW.

In 1977, two SVRR Baldwin 2-8-2's no.s 19 and 20 were obtained from the White Pass and Yukon. The locomotives were stored in Skagway and operated on WP&Y after their career on the SVRwy ended. In 1992 the 19 was trucked to Portland OR where Doyle McCormack's steam crew spent 4 years restoring the mike to operating condition.

The history of the SVRR is much more interesting and detailed, and you can learn more by visiting the Sumpter Valley Railway home page.

Throughout the exhibit, you will experience the power of the locomotive, from the inside out. Discover how modern locomotives use diesel, electricity, and magnetic levitation to travel longer distances at greater speeds than ever before. The grand finale of The Train Factory is when you take the Baldwin 60000 and its new engine for its experimental test run. Can the boiler handle the pressure? Will the boiler blow? Will the pistons push? The fate of the Baldwin 60000 is in your hands as you help move the train along the tracks by adding coal to the fire, blow the whistle, and release the throttle. Last Call! All Aboard!

South Carolina - Best Friend
Charleston, SC - The "Best Friend of Charleston" now housed in its Engine House at 31 Ann Street is a full-sized replica of the 1830 train. The steam engine was constructed from the original plans in 1928 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the "South Carolina Canal and Rail Road Company." Southern Railway operated this replica on excursions across the USA. The special railroad cars designed to carry the train between excursions are presently on display at the South Carolina Railroad Museum. The "Best Friend" was donated to the City of Charleston by Norfolk Southern in 1993. The Best Friend Museum closed in 2000. The Museum and Gift Shop were a joint venture of the Charleston Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and the City of Charleston.

Thumbnails by Thumbshots.org South Carolina - Best Friend
Charleston, SC - Built at the West Point foundry in 1830, the Best Friend was the first train built in America. Although this train blew up in 1831, its real legacy was the 136-mile rail line completed in 1833 upon which it ran. Stretching from Charleston to Hamburg (located across the Savannah River from Augusta, Ga.), this was the longest rail line in the world during the 1830s. This railroad was designed to enable Charleston to compete with Savannah for more trade with the state’s interior.

Visitors can board a car of the Best Friend as well as learn about railroad history. For example, the 136-mile ride took a grueling 14 hours in the 1830s but still was faster than the week-long wagon or horseback journey. Two separate HO-scale dioramas depict railroad scenes of both the 1870s and 1920s when the railroad was the king of transportation.

Thumbnails by Thumbshots.org Texas - Texas State Railroad State Historical Park
Rusk TX - The Texas State Railroad (TSRR) dates back to an 1881 purchase of land dedicated to building a spur track. The purpose of the track was to connect the state owned prison iron smelting facilities, then under construction, with the Kansas and Gulf Shortline railroad. The K&G was being built from Tyler to Rusk at the same time. This connection would provide the prison iron foundry with rail service to bring in raw materials and ship products out. Increased need for rail service soon led the state to build its' own railroad that eventually extended from Rusk to Palestine, providing local communities with freight and passenger service. Today, the historic state railroad is still maintained as a fully self-contained railroad system. Its train crews maintain and operate four steam engines, four antique diesel locomotives and a complete steam-engine restoration shop, while its track crew maintains over 25 miles of track and 24 bridges.

Passengers may board the historic trains at either Rusk or Palestine. Both ends of the line have Victorian-style train stations. The trip takes 1 and a half hours to reach the opposite station. Once visitors have arrived, they have 1 and a half hours to enjoy lunch, browse through the depot's train store or take a short nature hike. Passengers then re-board for the return trip home. The State Park's 50-mile round-trip steam-engine excursions take four and a half hours.

Cochrane, Ontario - There are only a few great rail excursions left in the world and this is one of them...the Polar Bear Express. Cochrane, where the Trans Canada Highway turns west, is the summer home of the Polar Bear Express and the departure point for this incredible 186-mile journey north to Moosonee.

You'll travel along the Arctic Watershed crossing historic rivers like the Abitibi and Moose, once the highways of the fur trade. The Polar Bear Express will take you to a sparsely populated land of forests, tranquil lakes, and muskeg. A land living in near isolation from the rest of the world.
