Three cabeese in town here. One ex-ATSF at a dive shop (Divers Depot), one ex-SP on a siding, and one painted for KATY (I think) at Millard's Crossing historic site.

Lucky fellow!
 
Sure wish my town could boast a vintage caboose or two.....

Here in Fargo-Moorhead, the BNSF has a job that requires a long backup move to leave Dilworth yard to service a sugar plant on the old GN P line branch.  The job runs as needed, and after servicing the plant, normally returns to Dilworth, again requiring a a long backup move to re-enter the yard.  
 
It's about a 2.5 mile long backup move, in case you're wondering.
 
This is the only caboose operating in the FM area.  Once a year, the Western Minnesota Steam Threshermen in Rollag, Minn., fire up their ex-Soo 0-6-0 switcher and run it around their grounds, using an ex-NP 24 foot wooden caboose at the end of its trains.  They also have an ex-SP&S wooden bay window caboose and an ex-Soo Line wooden cupola caboose.

I have photos, and will post them when I get some time.
 
In the meantime, may I offer a previously unpublished by me photo of a wooden NP caboose located in nearby Dilworth, Minnesota?

And if you'd like to see a few more cabooses, may I suggest going to:

That's where I post the cabeese I've shot over the years.
 
Enjoy!

Nice collection there Alan. Too bad it is so hard to add to it now days.

Chessiemike & HFM:
 
Thank you for you compliments.  I thought it would be easier to direct your attention over to that website rather than take up bandwidth here.  Not that anyone would object, of course!
 
I'll keep plugging away and adding on as I find photos.

Most towns in Georgia seem to have a caboose on display as well, even when the tracks have been pulled up for years such as Roberta, GA. Earlier this year I helped repaint a former Nickel Plate hack at the historical society in Forsyth, GA as part of an Eagle Scout project, which was incorrectly painted in Southern livery.  
Milner, Barnesville, Gordon, Buford, the CSX park at Tilford yard in Atlanta, and many other towns have hacks on display.  
For cabooses still in service, I have a thread up in the concourse:
