The caboose that sits as a landmark at the Eldora Welcome Center and Railroad Museum is looking like-new after a fresh coat of paint and detailing project were undertaken to restore it to pristine condition.
The Eldora City Council voted earlier this year to give the welcome center $2,000 to assist with the caboose update. Help has come from other sources too. Strand’s Paint of Marshalltown donated paint, and Sign Creations of Marshalltown is donating decals. Both companies have helped with the caboose near the YMCA in Marshalltown. Eldora’s welcome center is using donations to contribute to the project, too.
