USA Mexican caboose

Chapala, where my wife and I are retired, had a beautiful railroad station built by an entrepreneur who hoped to make a fortune off a direct rail line from Guadalajara (Mexico's second largest city) to here. It flopped, so the building was eventually turned into a museum. The inside is mostly pornographic statues (Forget it--I'm not posting photos), while the outside is a railroad museum. This caboose served on the Mexican Railroad System

Nice looking station. Shame it didn't make it. Strange combination it has now.
Caboose just needs a repaint. Thanks for showing.
