A former Rock Island wide vision caboose (17028) converted into a self-contained guest house and available as a bed and breakfast. Open all year I think? The caboose sits in the back yard of the Varner's beautifully restored depot which is their private residence. The property sits right across the road from the Mississippi river and what I believe is the old Soo line, now operated by the Iowa, Chicago and Eastern RR. A very tasty breakfast is prepared and stored in the refrigerator to be reheated so guests can eat at their leisure and in privacy in the caboose the next morning. The best part... leave the dirty dishes in the sink! The caboose has an ample closet, queen bed, twin beds in the cupola (with safety rails for children), shower and bathroom, microwave, cooktop, small refrigerator, sink, television/vcr with train videos.
