Not only are there books like The Little Red Caboose, but there is an entire branch of railfans who focus mostly on the caboose. Where it is often too large a challenge for railroad preservation organizations to care for a locomotive, a number of these groups focus their attention on rolling stock with special attention paid toward cabooses.   These cabooses had two separate sections.

These cabooses appeared usually in stock trains where the entire train was made up of livestock cars.
