This caboose is part of the old abandoned city of Islamorada Welcome Center that no one stops at. While stopping for this photo I walked around the overgrown neglected display and picnic area seen below. Even as is, this train itself is still a super photo for you and your children to stand in front of as a souvenir from the city of Islamorada. Approaching this mile marker, even though it’s on the main road, your eyes are drawn to the opposite side of the road and can pass right by it in a heartbeat.
You can find this caboose with no use on the right hand side of the road across from a strip mall at Mile Marker 82.5 bayside on US-1.
