Camp on the property is an old train caboose with large wood stove, kitchen, toilet, closets and room to sleep. Very unique to the market and comfortable! Electric is hooked up and there is a well on site for water.1

    Where does a person sleep in this place?

  • Jaime November 21, 2017, 10:19 am

    Sleeping is easy – I imagine they use that bench along the one wall. That said, my concern would be the water. Well water is fine and all, but – do they have some kind of electric pump to fill the tank on that flush toilet? All I saw in the pictures was a pitcher pump on the well-cap.

    Further, does it have proper septic?

    Other than that, I really like the place… it’s a lot of land, and with the waterway would be interesting. I wonder if that barge canal is still active… and where it goes.

    I have a love for anything railroad related, that being said the price is great for the land but that caboose has seen it’s better days. It will need a complete restoration, and I would put it back on it’s trucks and a section of track. With work it could be very nice.

    It could use a layer of fresh paint…

    One is paying for the land not a nice place to live.

      This website is about tiny living spaces. What is the point uploding it here because of the land alone? Also this train caboose is run down in my opinion… You can call me cantankerous, but this is my opinion.

      • Beth Grant DeRoos November 21, 2017, 2:58 pm

        I agree Redfish. If one wanted to actually live in that place they would need to do a lot of work. Thus my view is its the land not the run down caboose one would actually be buying. And as such they should not be listing it as a place to live, even on week ends.

        • redfish November 21, 2017, 3:04 pm

          I am glad you see it that way. Thank you for the reply!

          I agree totally the Caboose is great and to bad they did not keep the funiture from the caboose. It is really run down and a shame they have not taken care of it. It could be a great house if repaired and restored on the outside and build the inside for living. Yep a lot of work. If it was not NY I would be very interested. I won’t live in that corner of the country. Bad enough in California. Land would allow a great railroad for my trains though.

    This is so beautiful. Heavily influenced by too many reads of The Boxcar Children in childhood, would be thrilled to have my own caboose. It has so much potential and will be so gorgeous. Thanks for posting this.

    • Jenn Durham November 22, 2017, 9:00 am

      That is true! It reminds me of the Boxcar Children too. Such a pretty & unique Tiny Home. 🙂
