I ha friend here in Buford, GA who had a pair of Central of Georgia cabooses moved from Central Georgia to Buford. On both account he had a crane lift them into position onto a low boy trailer and hauled here. Trucks were shipped on a conventional flatbed trailer.

You can contact me off-line and I can hook you up with him.

Many people suggest cranes but instead try a house mover. We actually moved a caboose by winching it onto a low boy.

I know there are lots of people with a caboose out there but I think this kind of stuff makes for good reading. The Arrow or maybe even Trans magazine might be interested in a write up of the process.

Good luck.

I have purchased a NW caboose that is sitting in Georgia.   I need to have it moved from it's current position to my farm, a distance of about < 15 miles.

Do you know of anyone that can perform this task for me?   If so, please let me know their contact information.

Once the caboose is moved, I will be restoring it.   If you can give me any information regarding restoration, I would appreciate it.
