- The city of Wenatchee received a bit of railroading past this week but where it will end up has yet to be determined. During a brief ceremony in the middle of the Appleyard, Burlington Northern Railroad Co. officials deeded over a 1960 caboose to the Wenatchee Downtown Association and city officials. Association Manager Courtney Cox said her organization had contacted the railroad company in May after Wenatchee Mayor Jim Lynch indicated the city should look into obtaining a caboose for a city park. But where the caboose will be located is anyone’s guess, although Lynch said he preferred Riverfront Park.
