Caboose 41 was originally constructed in 1927 by Mount Vernon Car Works for the Florida East Coast Railroad as one of the 873-892 series cars. It was sold to the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway in 1935, being reclassified as a class NE-3, and gaining its current number. Between 1935 & 1936, nine of the NE-3 class cars were rebuilt for branchline passenger service, including our number 41. The car was in use on the NC&StL’s branch between Cowan & Tracy City, TN. The interior of the car was changed, removing the three steel bunks for crew resting, removal of a table and chairs, and replacing them with seating for 16 passengers. The car was an early acquisition by TVRM, having been donated by the Louisville & Nashville Railway in 1964, still running in NC&StL paint. Car 41 is the sole surviving member of the NE-3 class, as the others were all scrapped in 1968.
