According to the "Cabooses of the Norfolk and Western" by Bowers and Brewer
(available through the society) the 562764 was built 5/1944 and sold the the
Indiana and Ohio Eastern RR at Lebanon OH 7/1988. These cabs arrived on the
N$W in 1964 following the merger with the Wabash. Built in the Wabash's
Decatur shops between 1941 and 1946. There are several photo's of the cabs
in this book pages 165-169.

I'm doing research on N&W #562764 currently located on display in Lebanon,
Ohio. One of the pages I've read lists it as part of the C-17 class used on
the N&W. Does anyone have any details about this class? I haven't had a
whole lot of luck in my Googling. I'm curious about the class itself and how
some of them made their way to the Indiana and Ohio. Dates or date ranges
are always a plus, as well as any images of this caboose or her siblings
anyone may have.

Here's a couple of images of the caboose before its restoration:


It has since been restored (sans-N&W logo) and is being used by the City of
Lebanon for safety classes and as a community meeting place.

Thanks in Advance,
Kyle Montgomery
