Caboose

Located on land leased by the Village from Norfolk Southern; sits a caboose that will become the centerpiece for a proposed railpark.

The caboose was purchased jointly with Springfield Township and moved to its current location on November 21, 2003. The placement and restoration of the caboose completes the first phase of creating the rail park. Long range visions for the area include a paved parking area, seating for railroad enthusiasts, and a connection to the proposed bike trail from Strawberry Acres Park to Community Homecoming Park as well as possible restroom facilities. A new paved parking area for use by the public was installed Front and Clark in 2017. Parking is limited to two hour increments.
