Tucked just next to the train tracks at the intersection of Main and Davis Streets in Webster is one of the town's hidden treasures.

For more than 12 years the restored train caboose that's nestled just south of milepost 55 on the Providence and Worcester Railroad's Norwich-Worcester line has been the home of the Providence and Worcester Railfan Club and Museum, a group made up of dedicated rail enthusiasts. The caboose serves as the club's headquarters, museum and information center.

For most of the 39 club members who meet there monthly to talk trains, it's been a lifelong passion.
