Re: nice NYS&W single sheathed boxcar

That sounds about right.  From memory there were 11 36' cars left in 1959, but having recently sold just about all their their PS1s to the Monon and I believe, the L&NE, I suppose the NYS&W had little other choice.


The operation looked quite interesting, involving a train consisting of an RS1, MP54 combine, one of the corrugated Budd coaches with a boxcar bringing up the rear.  I think some NYS&W PS1s had brackets for marker lights for that reason.  I do not know if the 36' cars did too.
