Dear College Community,
As a child, I remember reading about "the little engine that could." On the Davis & Elkins College campus we have the little caboose that keeps coming back!
Sitting between Lake Tolstead and Robbins Memorial Chapel is a 1940 B&O Railroad caboose. Now refurbished and sporting a new bright D&E red coat of paint, it has a long tradition on our campus. For about 15 years beginning in the mid-1980s it sat near the athletic fields, alternately serving as a ticket booth and a home to insects and growing weeds.
