The Hampstead Train Station Committee received a donation of a caboose in 2008 from Art and Judy Risso. The caboose was moved to the Hampstead Train Station site and installed on a set of tracks adjacent to the station. The Risso's also paid for a complete renovation and painting of the caboose. The picture above shows the caboose in the traditional Western Maryland Railroad colors. The Risso's have made several other donations to the Hampstead Train Station, including a luggage cart, providing electricity to the caboose, and exterior lighting, just to mention a few.
The Hampstead Train Station Committee honored Art and Judy Risso at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Membership and presented them with the Golden Spike Award.
