Caboose in Pine, Colorado

kmaechner
I was poking around on Google Earth and noticed a photo close to the C&S grade (slightly east of Pine) that showed what appears to be a standard gauge caboose.   The photo is titled "old red caboose."  It has no markings on it and is not in the greatest of shape.  Does anyone know the background on this caboose and why/how it got there?

Thanks!
Kurt

This is a sg caboose that has been moved to a location east(down stream) of Buffalo, Colorado.  It is still close to  the C&S ng grade.
A ng DRG high side gon will show east of the Pine Grove fire house on the "next" pass of the google spy.  Gon was placed Dec. 30, 2017.

Thanks for the photo!  It's in much better shape here than the shot on Google Earth.  Does anyone know how it got there?  Is it owned privately or is it intended as a public display?
