Geocache Description:

You are looking for a micro.  The public is allowed on the steps of the caboose but don't try to go inside.  Of course you may as well get a picture yourself at the caboose while you’re there.  I always enjoy seeing pictures of the people visiting.   And don’t forget to check out the depot while you’re at it.

The depot was built and owned by the Burlington, later Burlington Northern and now Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.  The property is getting a rejuvenating face-lift by members of the VFW Post 526.  There may be some minor construction going on, but you are welcome to have a look around and maybe even find a geocache.  Today the local VFW Post 526 uses the depot building to hold their meetings.
