Southern Pacific Transfer Cabooses
#900 - 923
#925 - 930
#931 - 935
#907 was built upon a 9000 gallon rectangular switcher tender #7569, at Bayshore Shops in 1956.
SP built several classes or types of transfer caboose. #900 - 923 were built upon old steam engine tender underframes at Bayshore Shops between 1955 and 1960. No two were alike, and some were modified while in service.
#925 - 930 were built at Taylor Yard in 1964 from #541000 series flatcars.
Most are reported to have worked in the Bay Area and Los Angeles - likely their place of construction - on yard and transfer jobs.
#931 - 935 were built at Houston Shops between 1966 and 1967 - further details are unknown...
