    Wood Boxcar Salesman's Sample from 1883

    Hello! I came across this boxcar, that I think may have been a salesman's sample or a fancy office piece. The Allison Manufacturing Company was named such in 1883. I believe this piece to be older than that, based on the square bolt heads. It is made of chestnut. The roof is copper, the wheels...

    ATSF 151824

    This old Santa Fe boxcar came through Bend on a Northbound manifest today. Amazing to see a car still retaining its ATSF reporting marks in 2010, and in revenue service. Too bad the graffiti covered up the build date.

    Curses!!! Dick Dastardly and Muttley ride again!

    Muttley and Dick Dastardly cartoon characters show up in graffitti applied to a NS boxcar -- so THAT'S what those guys do when they aren't tagging railcars or smoking dope!

    Before DPU came through, CN intorduced this fun boxcar. CP uses ex-BN 40's for the same purpose in Northern Ontario with SOO #'s. Generally these are put on the trail-end of a long train, at least 9000ft me thinks. 2:05pm CN 311, 149 cars CN 5788-5425 2 autoracks, 58 boxcars (45 cut), 2...

    Ancient CPR 40'

    One can only guess how old this boxcar really is. The original paint dates prior to script, so 1940's? Hard to believe it's still roadworthy in 2008, even if it is used as a rolling shed. How odd he looks next to a modern IMS double-stack. No such thing when he originally rolled the country...

    CP 40' box in 2008

    Although they won't admit it, CP loves their old 40's, as they're all over MOW service refusing to die! Surely a number of 'newer' 50's are making it onto the MOW circut, but the 40's fleet remains strong. I really like this one since it looks stock, particularly if you don't notice the newly...

    GN boxcar!

    Last time I was @ IPSCO (major scrapper) I spotted an old NP mail coach, so I knew there was treasre to be found. On my last trip to Regina I made sure I didn't miss any of it, by driving around every block of the compound. I got lots of strange looks from buldozer operators, but look what I... is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
