I'm a bit puzzled by the caboose. The power would be rotated in and out for servicing and inspections, but the local job at Geneva would keep the same caboose. It's possible that was power and caboose for a work train or an extra of some sort.
My notes relate: CN power (leased) w/Tr #SC-5 at Geneva, NY dropping cars in ex-LV yds. & dropping power & caboose for local at service area. Sat, Oct 23, 76.
Info would have been from the GY operator who was an acquaintance.
