The late Ed Neubaum spent over four decades studying the history, construction, and users of the most diminutive cabooses ever to ride North American rails. These cars were built from shortly after the Civil War until the mid-1910s, when state laws heavily restricted their use. Still, several cars remained in service into the late 1960s, and many survive today in preservation. With black & white photographs of bobber cabooses on 130 different railroads, this book is a comprehensive look at the operations and history of four-wheeled cabooses across the continent.
