A Night at the Red Caboose Motel

We were looking for someplace to stay during our trip to the Strasburg Rail Road and decided on staying once again at the Red Caboose Motel. I miss the days when all the cabooses were actually red. Now, they are painted to the actual railroad colors from which they came. The caboose we stayed in, unit 30, was in pretty bad shape. The steps were rotted, the doors paper thin, rust on the bathroom metal surfaces, the caboose had an extreme lean, and just a general run down appearance. We did get an "apology" flyer at check-in stating that the motel was in the process of being renovated and it did appear as some of the cabooses had been freshly painted. At least our room was clean.

You park in front of your caboose and the cabooses are just a short walk to the Strasburg Rail Road tracks. We were able to see the 611 from our room!
