The Canyon Motel elected to move two old original 1929 Cabooses on to the property and transform them into lodging suites. But wait, thatís not all, they also brought in a Grand Canyon Pullman railcar and have also made this into Lodging quarters. All these train cars are equipped with baths, heaters, air conditioners, small refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers as well as Cable TV with VHS players. The owners say that these train cars are far and away the most requested and reserved units that they have.

It all started in 1969 when Don Denlinger was dared to bid on 19 old cabooses being auctioned off by the Pennsylvania Rail Road. Although Don jokingly put in a bid below the scrap value of the cabooses, he still had the highest bid and was now stuck with the old train cabooses. What can you do with 19 Rail Road Cabooses??? Turn them into a motel of course! What started off as a dare has grown into one of Lancaster County's most unusual motel, with over 40 rooms made from fully restored 25-ton cabooses. Located in the heart of Amish farmlands, the Red Caboose is now owned by Larry Demarco. After years of neglect, Larry has begun to fully restore the many colored cabooses to bring back the family fun.
