The "Moose Caboose" was built by the Pullman Company in Chicago in 1944 as a rail car in which to house and move troops during WW II. Alaska Adventure Cabins began the conversion to a one bedroom, one bath, full kitchen, and living room luxury cabin in the summer of 2002. The conversion was completed in the winter of 2002.
The conversion included the complete sandblasting and repainting of the exterior which was painted to match the Alaskan Railroad colors of blue and yellow. Large picture windows and a large deck were installed on the ocean view side. From the private deck you can see glaciers, volcanoes, Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit. A large greenhouse is located outside where flowers and plants are grown to beautify the Alaska Adventure Cabins.
