Because I just can't help myself, my modern Texas shortline-the Red River Belt-will have a couple cabooses on the roster. I'll justify this (for myself anyway) by the long, urban switching movements on the Wichita Falls district. Essentially the same reason why BNSF and CSX still keeps a few. But on a Montana vacation a couple of years ago while traveling through Billings, I noticed SEVERAL Montana Rail Link cabooses in the yard that appeared to be anything but seldom used. What do they use their's for? I can't picture them needing as many as I saw for just "shoving platforms." They've got them in good shape for some reason. Can someone enlighten me?
