Notes:

1.

UP 25804 is currently [April 2011] being restored by Boulder Valley Historical Society, Boulder, Colorado; the caboose came from Montbello, Colorado, and later from Dacono, Colorado. (2011 update from Roger Kirkpatrick via email dated May 1, 2011) (Photo at RRPictureArchives)

As of March 2015, the caboose is shown as for sale. (message on Railway Preservation News)

Additional information from a photo taken in June 2006: "UP 3171 was built in 1923 and retired in 1966. It is a standard UP class "CA-1" wood caboose and is typical of cabooses that the UP would have used on the Boulder Branch. CA-1's could be found at the end of UP freight trains into the 1960's. Following its retirement, #3171 was used to promote the Montbello Business Park along I-70 east of Denver from 1967 to the early 1980's. #3171 was donated to the BCRHS in 2001 and is painted "Armour Yellow", the standard color for UP cabooses after World War II."
