Luxury Caboose “J.J.”
Is this the world’s most luxurious caboose?
Like Great Northern 441, J.J. creatively blends wood, leather and stone to reflect Montana’s rich flora, fauna and landscape. Walls of turquoise aspen and rustic barn wood, accented with recycled chocolate leather, warmly envelope the soothing leather furnishings.
The kitchen boasts a full refrigerator, gas range, microwave and copper sink. Lotus granite countertops, glazed hickory cabinetry, and the blue pine eating bar compliment the rich wood interior.
The barn wood throughout J.J. displays 12 different pieces of antique barbed wire from the late 1800s, when Montana became a state.
The bedroom is walled in spalted birch and barn wood, accented with recycled leather. The queen size bed has a denim duvet adorned with a Glacier Park Pendleton and Hudson Bay pillow shams, echoing the theme of Great Northern’s sleeping cars.
J.J.’s cupola has been converted to an upper bunk, complete with a view of the BNSF mainline.
The bathroom and shower are framed by walls of travertine stone accented with green rainforest marble tiles.
