The Caddo Caboose was used at the Longhorn Ammunition Plant in Karnack, Texas and the plant provided most of the munitions for the world wars through the Korean War. When the Army shut the plant down thirty or so years ago, the creator of the Caddo Caboose took the car and made it into a great weekend getaway which just opened in July of 2008. It no longer looks like a Caboose from the outside but several caboose fans have stayed with us over the last year since we started renting it out and they have enjoyed it tremendously.
