MWHA - Black River Bridge

Found a Conrail caboose in the weeds next to the Bender Lane crossing in Carthage.Follow the rail through Carthage and you'll see it on street view.From what I saw it looks to be in good shape plus it still has the original Conrail logo and colored blue.Brings back memories from my youth seeing those old cabooses.
