Even back when this picture was shot in January 1972, the classic wooden caboose was a relic living on borrowed time. The location is the Delaware & Hudson yard at Whitehall, NY on the Montreal line. The crew of this way freight has dropped their consist in the yard and DL-701 5023 is making the move to the caboose track with the old "hack". Another few moments and the crew will be on their way home to dinner.
