About the Cover

Canadian Pacific recently donated a 1959 caboose to the borough of Dickson City and it's parked next to the old freight station along Boulevard Avenue.

The caboose was scheduled to be scrapped, so it's great to see it saved from the scrap heap.

It's also nice to see Dickson City intends to create a little focal point, just a block from the main intersection in town.  Every town needs something to make it visually interesting and special, something to give it character.  One of the goals is to teach kids about the area's railroading history, and you can't argue with that.
