Caboose in the Weeds—Newport, Vermont.

Once common, the caboose is now a curiosity on most freight railroads.

A few weeks ago, I used my Nikon F3 with 105mm Nikkor telephoto to make this photograph on Ilford HP5 film of a forlorn caboose at the Canadian Pacific/Vermont Rail System yard in Newport, Vermont.

The combination of the functional antique railroad equipment and monochrome media gives this image a timeless quality.

I recall photographing similar cabooses on this line back in the 1980s.
