Watch Us Install History
& Celebrate with Savings!
"It's not every day that you get to see a caboose ambling down the highway, not to mention flying into position here at its new home at Caboose in its role as a historic landmark." — Kevin Ruble
Stop by Caboose at 10800 W. Alameda Avenue in Lakewood this Saturday afternoon, February 17th, to see a piece of history installed along the West Alameda Corridor. Caboose owner Kevin Ruble has purchased an historic, full-size railroad caboose to be placed on a just-laid section of track in the store parking lot.
It will begin to make its slow, 30-mile move to Lakewood at 6 a.m. Saturday morning, and should take about ten hours from start to installation.
During our anniversary sale, enjoy in-store discounts, February 17th through February 26th!
Storewide savings of 5% to 15% off our already low prices!

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!
