Leelanau Trail between Traverse City and Suttons Bay! The yellow caboose is on the east side of Leelanau Trail just north of E Carter Road in Greilickville, Elmwood Township, Leelanau County. Just northwest of Traverse City.

No but it is along an old ROW. This caboose is or was part of a rental property that you could sleep in
