Re: NKP Consist


Skins might be beef Hides. It was relatively common to ship green (not tanned) beef hides that would be turned into leather.  They were usually shipped hand stacked in boxcars. It was a relatively common commodity in eastern NY and New England

I showed the consist doc to several people today. One repeated question
was the cars that showed SKINS as their contents. One suggestion was the

make pork rinds (assuming the load was pork skins). Both cars were going
to Stoneham MA on the B&M. Anyone have more insight into this?
