Ed Ciliberti purchased the caboose in April 2018 with plans to redo it and open it as a gift shop and a display for railroad memorabilia. To get ready for it to open, Ciliberti had the railcar’s roof replaced and fumigation done. He also obtained a lease from the City of Monterey so he could keep the 45-foot-long car on Cannery Row. “It will be open in January with railroad memorabilia for sale and a museum highlighting the history of the railcar,” including before it was converted to a caboose in the 1940s and came to Cannery Row in 1968,

A technology being deployed along Cannery Row is able to tell businesses how many people are walking down the sidewalk in front of their stores at any particular time of the day and even what gender the pedestrians are.

The device and software, called ViMo, is a vision-based sensor with AI analytics that can, for example, tell a business that 200 men of an average age walk past the store on Tuesdays between noon and 1 p.m. A retailer could then adjust its marketing to target that particular customer base.

The software does not use facial recognition.

Ciliberti purchased the historical caboose for $27,000 with the expectation to not only keep and maintain the piece of history and landmark in Cannery Row, but to also run an antique and collectibles business out of it as the previous owners did. He recently paid upward of $20,000 for the railroad memorabilia inventory owned by the caboose’s previous owners Debbie and Randy Reinstedt.

“I didn’t know – I purchased it with the idea of keeping and knowing that it would stay local and hopefully it would continue as a business,” said Ciliberti, noting that he had bought it under certain assumptions but had not yet talked with the city about it. “I recently purchased all the memorabilia with the hope to continue on the same path (as the previous owners).”

“I was really wanting to make sure that nobody out of the area was going to take it,” said Ciliberti, a Realtor with Keller Williams and Peninsula resident since 1982. “It’s a piece of history and a landmark.”
Although the Reinstedts received several offers with one prospective buyer willing to pay substantially higher than the asking price, Debbie Reinstedt said the couple feel good about the caboose’s new owner.
