Did any of the Rutland wooden hacks get used during the RS-3 days? Or was it just eh wide-vision cabooses? Thanks.

thought Rutland only had 2 Wide Visions delivered during 1959 ?
if so,then the Woodies were used plenty behind the RS-1s and RS-3s.

Charles Ricci, a longtime fan and modeler of the Rutland and Vermont railroads generally, sent me this today:

"The wooden cabooses were used into the era of the RS-1's and RS-3's and, I think, right to the end of the Rutland. Some were repainted green and yellow; I am not sure if any remained red to the end. However, there was a long period when a red wooden caboose was on the end of a train powered by an RS-1 or RS-3.

"If I recall correclty, the Vermont Railway started off with a repainted Rutland caboose."

I'll add this myself: At rr-fallenflags.org Vermont Railway #3 is clearly an ex-Rutland car, but #'s 6 and 7 are ex-Central Vermont.

Also, I think the real question about the Rutland's two extra wide vision cupola cabeese from International Car Co. is whether the railroad ever got to use them at all. I don't think I've seen any photos of them in service on the Rutland.

the Wide Visions were a Tack On to the D&H order at ICCo.
they went to the D&H after the Rutland shut down.
have read they were financed or sub-leased thru D&H.
