This Santa Fe caboose, currently in Barstow, will be coming to Fallbrook to serve as the key attraction for the new Fallbrook Railroad Heritage Park

The first phase of development of the Fallbrook Railroad Heritage Park is nearly complete, which means a Santa Fe caboose will soon be sitting just northwest of the intersection of Main Avenue and Elder Street.

"The ground has been graded, a pad created and the tracks put down," said Fallbrook Village Association president Roy Moosa, who noted that the 39-foot track panel was from a temporary line that ran in Los Angeles.

"The next step is to bring in ballast, which is a gravel material," said Moosa. "Once that is in place we're ready to go pick up the caboose, which is in Barstow."
