Warren Caster; There were workers there at the time, but I'm not quite sure how many.

Workers; I like working here, best keep quiet.

Warren Caster; Look for a rifle for my son's birthday ..... I beg your pardon, Christmas present.

Truth flows easy, Warren

Supposedly there was a "small group" that gathered. I looked into this a while back but I don't remember if there was testimony to this event besides Truly's, Shelly's, Warren Caster's, and Oswald's. 

It was always a very suspicious event to me, especially with Caster bringing in a Mauser, and then the "mistaken" identification of a Mauser on the 22nd as the murder weapon. 

I also thought for a second that perhaps Caster was the same "Colonel Caster" mentioned by one Mrs. Connell in CE 3108, but in actually that is Col. L. Robert Castorr, which was discussed on this forum a while back between Greg Parker and Steve Thomas I believe. 

Ultimately, this is a dead end. If anyone can find anything more about it, I'd be fascinated. Only two real things jumped out at me:

1) The WC's key person files included a small folder on Warren Caster that also included the testimony of Ms. Hernandez, Vargas, and Salinas, who each recalled an older man and a younger man exchanging a rifle in the parking lot of the TSBD on the 21st. If the idea was trying to associate this event with Warren Caster bringing in rifles to the TSBD, it is certainly mistaken. The women recalled this incident happening specifically in the rain on the 21st. It did not rain on the 20th, and Caster said he brought his rifles home that Wednesday night. The link for this is here: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=232883#relPageId=1

2) The only interview with Warren Caster is here: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=232883#relPageId=1&search="Warren_caster"https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=1320#relPageId=57

There is not much of interest, in my opinion, except this passage (regarding his whereabouts on the 22nd):

"Warren did bring up one interesting point about his testimony. To his knowledge, the Warren Commission never confirmed his alibi.......As Warren says, 'They got off my back pretty quick.' He was never contacted again." 

Gee, I wonder why the commission wasn't eager to follow-up with a witness who brought guns into the TSBD two days before the president was allegedly killed from a rifle shot from a window in the same building. 

In any case, I'm not sure the event is actually suspect myself, the Mauser thing I think is a coincidence, and I have no reason to disbelieve Caster, but I do wish it was investigated more than it was, which is to say not at all.
