Kent WA Wooden Caboose
HRR provide transportation consulting and body restoration services to Scott Andrews, a private investor, on a Northern Pacific 1200 series caboose.
After the caboose was retired by Burlington Northern in the mid 1970'S, it was moved to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state and a cover was put over the caboose.
The caboose spent 30 years in the same location which caused its wooden structure to absorb the moisture in the air. This created body damage to not only the siding, but to the main frame. HRR removed all siding on the caboose and replaced structural frame members. Insulation with new siding was installed. The body had a coat of oil base primer applied and 2 coats of an industrial oil base paint.The trucks were cleaned and painted black. HRR also installed new wood for the interior ceiling and walls.
