Re: Arguably the most interesting N&W 40-ft Boxcar


One of the 40' cars survives today lying on it's side and roof in a creek embankment along the Wabash trail between Mineola and Silver City, Iowa.   The roof details don't exactly match any builders photos I've seen, but it's clearly some kind of N&W B-6 variant.   Two composite to steel rebuilds in similar condition accompany it, A 40' Wabash USRA, and a NKP 50' auto box.  I'd be happy to help any tape measure toting N&W experts find the site.
