The Rusk Chamber of Commerce is trying to relocate a red caboose from the Texas State Railroad to the Heritage Park in front of the Weston Inn and Suites in Rusk. More than $20,000 is available to help construct the park from memorials and honorariums donated when former Mayor Emmett Whitehead died in 2002.
