Though it doesn’t feature the quintessential potbelly shape, the Estate is part of the potbelly family, steeped in a long history of providing warmth to travelers heading west. The vintage stove is a true piece of historic railroad memorabilia, a working artifact from the early days of train transportation. The stove got its name because it was most often set-up in the caboose of the train. The steel rods would fasten to the floor of the caboose to help prevent the stove from tipping over in case of a train wreck. The flat bottom also aided in keeping the stove steady and secure. Two cooklids, located on top of the antique stove, would warm up the conductor’s pot of coffee and noon-time meal. A large ash clean-out area at the base makes for a quick and easy clean-up of ashes, and the draft controls on the ash clean-out door help regulate the heat. The Estate is not only a reliable and functional heater, it is a historic treasure from America's past.
