What happened to Caboose Hobbies?

The predecessor to Caboose Hobbies was established in 1938 in Denver, was purchased by Glenn Brazleton in 1951, converted to a train enthusiasts store and renamed Caboose Hobbies. Ownership passed to Glenn’s son Duane Miller and his wife Joanna, who moved the store to the 500 South Broadway location in 1981. Upon termination of the lease at that location in 2016, the assets of Caboose Hobbies were purchased by Kevin Ruble, the store was moved 7-1/2 miles west to Lakewood, Colorado and renamed Caboose (which is what almost everybody called it anyway). So fear not, intrepid train enthusiasts – we’re still here, and more accessible than ever!

Monon and Caboose have teamed up!

Caboose is proud to announce that we are now working with the Monon Railroad Historical & Technical Society to run their company store! We have combined with the fellas at MRHTS to offer them a great platform for all things Monon! All members receive an additional 10% off Monon items and 5% off regular inventory items within the site! This includes special orders and advanced reservations, no consignment items apply. You can see the Monon collection at a link on the top navigation bar next to "All Inventory". If you care to join the society, there are links to the Monon site with directions on being a part of this great historical society. If you are a member, contact the store and we will amend your account so you can partake in these great discounts! If you would like to see if your historical society is interested in having their company store powered by Caboose, then give us a call at 303-777-6766 and ask for Matt or Killian. We will be glad to talk with you about joining the growing list of societies represented by Caboose.
