BN Caboose 10710
Waycar 10710Burlington Northern (BN) waycar 10710 is one of hundreds of cabooses that roamed the former CB&Q (Chicago Burlington & Quincy, the "Burlington Route" or simply the "Q") and other railroads in the BN family. She is BN all the way, built in January 1972, over a year after the 1970 creation of Burlington Northern.
Railroads often had a "family" manner of classifying their rolling stock and 10710 is referred to as a 30' extended-vision centered-cupola steel waycar. The body window arrangement is "2 - 1." RR Picture Archives features several views of 10710 in service along with this data:
