A Merry Christmas and best wishes from the Guelph Historical Railway Association!
With marker lamps lit and a collection of lanterns shining, caboose 436994 poses for a night time shot. Lanterns include a 1947 Ontario Northland Railway, a 1925/30 Canadian National Railway, and two 1910 era Grand Trunk Railway lanterns. 
436994 was built around 1928, and served until the 1980s. The caboose also served on the Dominion Atlantic Railway in the 1970s. It was given as a thank you gift to an executive of a large retail firm here in Canada, as a thank you for signing a large contract with the CPR. It was moved to a property near Mildmay, Ontario. It was acquired by the GHRA from there, and moved to Guelph where it has been restored and maintained ever since.
Our group also acquired caboose 4900 through a donation by the Ontario Southland Railway in August of 2020.
