Comments

From the dust jacket- "Nearly everyone is familiar with the railroad caboose. Formally, it's the punctuation mark that concludes every freight train- a mobile office for the crew, a lookout post. It is the van on the Canadian National, a cabin car on the Pennsylvania, a buggy on the Boston & Maine; but by whatever name, it remains symbolic of the railroad scene."
