Well, your Google-fu is certainly srtronger than mine! Thank you!

It is now owned by the Southern MI RR, a club in Clinton MI. I was going to check their website to see if they have any info. The photos of the complete train is their rolling stock. They do 3-4 hour excursions from spring-fall, although they don't yet have a 2020 schedule posted. The gondola in the middle has been converted to seating, probably the best car for photographers. I plan to give them a whirl if everything clears up this year.

It's the shortest bit of track I've ever seen; just down the side of the church.
(And not Mu-43 either, sorry - Olympus TG5).

I'd bet a cookie the old engineer has the most fun of all! A perfect retirement gig!

I would call it a caboose, but that might not be correct. On the main track, I never see cabooses (is cabeese the plural?). Usually engines at both ends.
Evidently it's called a 'short roof' or 'short body' caboose. Also found some reference to a 'transfer' caboose. Yours looks more caboosey than the one in my shot with the windows situated so the switchmen can watch the train. Mine looks more like a shed.

Captured at Grosmont on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
Converted to Sepia for that traditional look.

With or without mask Richard?
If they so choose - British Transport police can hit you with £100 ticket - so with mask. Considering I was on my way to donate an armful of Covid plasma, I don't know who I was supposed to be protecting.

Managed to run half a dozen frames off at the other end before the security gentleman informed me, quite wrongly that I was not allowed to take photographs on Network Rail property. I was late, so I didn't bother arguing. Resulting pano which mostly matches up below. EM1MK2/17mm f1.2.
