Not What it Appears to Be

It may look like a Penn Central caboose but when this photograph was made this car was on the roster of Conrail.

Conrail No. 24546 is shown in Akron in July 1976. Note the Pennsylvania Railroad boxcar ahead of it.

Everett Railroad Gets Vintage PRR Boxcar

October 25, 2019

The Everett Railroad of Pennsylvania has taken delivery of a former Pennsylvania Railroad box car that it acquired from the Indiana Transportation Museum.

A Facebook posting indicated that the railroad might restore the car to operating condition and run it behind its Alco 2-6-0 No. 11.

The car became surplus for ITM after it was evicted from its long-time home in Forest Park in Noblesville, Indiana, in June 2018.

Some of the rolling stock left behind was sold at auction earlier this year.
