The Garbely Publishing Company partnered with The Conrail Historical Society to produce the definitive guide to Conrail cabooses. Authored by GPCo (and CRHS) president Rudy Garbely with contributions from The CRHS's staff, this book includes all 35 classes of Conrail cabooses, complete with the histories of each class and stories from Conrail employees that worked on them. This book also contains information on cars that were destined for the Conrail roster, but never operated on Conrail.

The book includes over 600 color photos, 28 original Conrail car diagrams, and detailed roster entries for over 2,500 cabooses.


All author royalties from the sale of this book are being donated to The Conrail Historical Society.
