Cabooses on the Missabe were originally short 4-wheel "bobbers", but quickly evolved to a somewhat standard 3-window style, some built by splicing together 2 bobbers, others built new to a similar design. Additionally, a handful of other styles existed, including ones with freight doors, and others which were oversized.

In 1953, the Missabe received the industry's first wide-vision caboose and then added another order for more in 1974. All but a handful of cabooses were scrapped.
