Northwestern Pacific 5591

This caboose started out as NS 2002 and was subsequently numbered NWP 6101 and NWP 5591.

It was restored by the Bethlehem ship-yard in SF in 1969 for display in Samuel Taylor State Park.

The NWP/ICC records say this car was built by North Shore in 1904, but a NS "Requisition for Construction and Repair" show the car as having been repaired and repainted in May 1906 for $115.00. Additionally the ledger for the requisitions show no other work on this caboose, proving the car was on hand when the railroad was formed. (Text paraphrased from Northwestern Pacific Narrow Gauge Cabooses, an article by Randy Hees.)
