Rail Boxcar, California Western Railroad #462

In 1912 the California Western Railroad had a total of 199 cars in freight service, the vast majority being flatcars used for hauling logs and lumber. Of that total, the Railroad owned three wooden boxcars, built in 1912, and then rebuilt in 1923.

Rail Caboose, California Western Railroad #4

The exact history of caboose #04 is in question, as is the case of all CWR wooden cabooses. While it is very likely that #04 was one of a series built at Fort Bragg in the teens and 1920s, there is at this time no confirmation that this is the case.
