About the individual cabooses:

Caboose #311 - This 1940's era steel caboose is 9' X 25' inside, with a set of bunk beds and a daybed. The cupola seats convert into two youth beds (22" X 72") for those youngsters who want a "sleeping under the stars" experience. It is equipped with a dinette for six and plenty of storage space. This caboose is stationed at Bald Knob.

Note: Caboose units are rustic by nature.
