History: The Civil War Era caboose was a fairly primitive piece of equipment. Basically, it was a boxcar with some windows added. Like most cars of that period, the underframe was reinforced with a truss rod. Truss rods have the same purpose as I beams or channel beams do in more mdern equipment; or, the unitized body of automobiles do today. They give strength in the direction needed to support the load placed on the car.

19th century rolling stock was for the most part constructed using wood sheathing.
