Now for the Cache:



This geocache was placed with the permission and assistance of the caboose owner, Feras Rahman, and current tenant, Tutor Station.


Caboose number 1021-R was originally owned by the Texas and Pacific Railway Company, which was first established in 1871.

The caboose is now privately owned and used by commercial business tenants in Conroe.

A very interesting (and short) read how railroads became owners of large areas of land in Texas can be found here:
