PULLING THE CABOOSE —







Tri-State Rail Services workers laid railroad tracks to move a caboose parked near the Letcher County Veterans Memorial Museum in downtown Whitesburg Tuesday. A 30-foot expansion will be added to the museum. Wayne Collins, foreman of the Sapphire Coal Company prep plant at Thornton, rode aboard the caboose and controlled the brake. The rail services and coal companies donated materials and labor for the move.
