 Copley OH

AC&Y caboose 63 on display at the Copley Township Park adjacent to the preserved Copley Depot. Built by the International Car Company of Kenton, Ohio in 1947, it is believed to be the only one of the six member class remaining. The Copley Historical Society (CHS) has kept 63 in good condition, but it needs roof repairs and the exterior professionally painted. The estimate for the two projects is $12,000. CHS also plans to refurbish the interior.
