Caboose C2013 was built by the Baltimore & Ohio's (B&O) Washington, IN, shops in 1926. The C2013 is one of 401 class I-5 cabooses once owned by the B&O. It was reclassified as I-5D when the car was rebuilt with cast frame trucks. The car has a steel underframe, ends and frame, with wooden side sheathing. Over the years, the C2013 has undergone many changes including the removal of its wooden underbody tool box, upgrading of the airbrake system, and the addition of toilets and water tanks which resulted in some of the car's original windows being sheathed over. Wilmington & Western volunteer shop crews have restored the car's original window placement, and have also added a back-up horn and lights for use during long back-up moves. In the summer of 2005, the C2013 entered our shops so that new roller-bearing trucks (wheel assemblies) could be installed and the aging wood siding replaced.
In 2016, C2013 underwent a top-to-bottom restoration. On the outside, the car was restored to an authentic B&O paint scheme, complete with dark-green window frames and sashes, a B&O capitol dome logo and the addition of authentic B&O window awnings. The interior was also refurbished with a modern toilet, new electrical wiring and LED lighting, new heater, and a fresh coat of paint throughout.
