Lititz, PA.  If I recall correctly, it was actually a CNJ caboose (made by the Reading shops).

Yes!  I think this is a Northeast type?

And even better?  The Wilbur Chocolate Company store is just across the street (to the right out of camera).  OMG!!!

Once you've tasted Wilbur Buds, you will throw rocks at Hershey's Kisses.  Trust me on this.

Near us is the 13 mile Indian Head Rail Trail that goes from White Plains, MD to the Indian Head Naval Station.  Several years ago, before the tracks were removed, they brought in an old C&O extended vision caboose along with some old Amtrak cars to start a diner train along the route.  Well the diner train never materialized and the route was changed to a rail trail.  The passenger cars were destroyed in place, but the caboose remained.

The community did a fundraising to renew the caboose and they did a pretty nice job.
