The Lehigh Valley is largely forgotten in discussions about the Bicentennial because they didn’t repaint any diesels for the occasion, although they made a stunning, although short-lived, impression with their star-spangled caboose. LV’s “Spirit of 76” was built in July 1940 and received this patriotic treatment in November 1975, five months later the railroad was folded into Conrail, who quickly repainted the predecessor railroad’s cabooses. Caboose No. 1776 is still looking good as it trails a freight train on March 30, 1976, just two days before the Conrail takeover. - See more at: http://trpmagazine.com/bicentennial-units/#sthash.SRjmJGNh.dpuf
