The Sedalia Heritage Foundation announces the kick-off of its Caboosters fundraising campaign through the internet-based crowdfunding site called Kickstarter. Caboosters has been created to raise $12,099 for the relocation and restoration of the Missouri Pacific Caboose 12099—otherwise referred to as the “pink caboose.”  The caboose will be moved from its current location on the Missouri State Fairgrounds to track next to the Sedalia Katy Depot later this year.  Its exterior will be restored to its original color scheme with proper MoPac signage and the interior converted for various uses.

Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising website—meaning that the full amount requested must be raised in order to receive any of it. Help us reach our goal of saving this vital piece of Sedalia’s railroading history—pledge your support and pass on the news to others who might also wish to contribute.


The Sedalia Heritage Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to preservation, interpretation and operation of the Sedalia Katy Depot landmark
