LEBANON JUNCTION - The railroad has been a fixture in the Lebanon Junction community since 1857.
Howard Brinner thought there would be no better way to symbolize that importance than with a rail car in the town square.
When CSX decided to phase out the use of cabooses, Brinner ask for one.
The rail officials granted the wish but Brinner had only a couple of weeks to get it off the company’s property.
Then began Brinner’s lifetime quest to bring a reminder of the railroad’s importance to Lebanon Junction for generations to come.
