Ex-NKP Coach Trucked to Lake Shore Museum

October 30, 2014

It needs a lot of restoration work, but a former Nickel Plate Road lightweight coach has found a new home at the Lake Shore Railway Museum in North East, Pa.

The museum took delivery of No. 103, which was built in 1950 by Pullman Standard. The 52-seat coach no doubt passed the museum several times during its tenure on the Nickel Plate before it was sold in August 1964 to the Atlantic Coast Line.

Amtrak later acquired the car and renumbered it 5253. It was sold in 1981.

The car had been languishing in Gowanda, N.Y., and was used in the move Planes, Trains & Automobiles.

It was trucked moved to North East from Gowanda last week.
