I took the two pictures about a week apart from each other.. The two have something in common and the answer is hiding in the picture..

JW answered it correctly shortly after I posted, The Caboose is still onsite of the former Sargent Sand Pit in Ludington. The Locomotive was purchased new in 1952 and was delivered in the same paint scheme that it still wears today, I believe the caboose is a C&O caboose. If you noticed on the side of the locomotive the word Ludington is peeking through the paint that was used to cover this over...
