Located on Choo Choo Avenue
, the Christmas Caboose gift shop is an exact replica of a 19th century caboose
built from plans acquired from the Smithsonian
by friend and long-time train enthusiast Joe Ukleya
of Hannibal. Ukleya also donated the steel rails. Jack purchased the original wheels and trucks from a railroad yard in Syracuse, NY.
The steam engine was fabricated from an original steam roller that was used to build & pave many of the roads in Hannibal.
