There is no heat or air conditioning in the caboose, however windows do open for a great lake breeze. Larger parties are encouraged to ride as a group on the Duluth Zephyr Excursion train. It is a historic, workers caboose, far from the lap of luxury. But a unique opportunity to experience what caboose duty was like.

A cooler of non-alcoholic beverages is available for caboose passengers, and light snacks (chips/candy)

Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the caboose, this is not a wheelchair accessible ride. However, folks with limited mobility can access the caboose with 3 short steps to enter the lower level of the caboose.
