S.P.Co. cast iron Caboose stoves

From: TWINCOACH@aol.com

Was wondering if anyone might know if Sacramento Shops (FOUNDRY) cast caboose stoves back in the old days ...

We found a Southern Pacific stove which we installed in our 1882 combine, SP 1010. Based on casting numbers and other markings, we guess it is pre 1900.

I have seen TWO caboose stoves with the SPRR Logo cast into the metal, but never a stove with the CPRR logo. Chuck Sweet would know the answer to this one, if anyone would!
