Caboose Arrives From Salinas

A caboose was hauled from Salinas to History San Jose and was coupled to SP1215.

The caboose had been in Salinas for 19 years.

The size of the caboose dictated a somewhat roundabout route: It was transported from Salinas via highways 1, 156 onto Northbound US 101 to a bit south of Gilroy.  There it was carried on highways 25 and 152 back to 101 again to continue to History San Jose.  Various permits and police escorts were involved in the process.

Peninsula Crane and Rigging (Joe Bauer) provided the lift and Taylor Trucking provided the trucks.
