NNG CA Caboose is on the move in Cheyenne

My next project is on the way to her new home today, very rare UP 1913 CA caboose 2516 found a few miles East of town will move to a temporary home for initial weatherproffing and then downtown next to Car 57 for Depot Days on May 19th and 20th. What makes this CA so rare is ...the colour never received Armour Yellow as it was withdrawn in March 1947 and the only 2500 series caboose known to exist.
