Today, I am
finishing up presenting photos of C&O MW house cars.
This isn't all that I have, but what's left are essentially
duplicates of what you've already seen. I have a few C&O
open cars, Burro cranes, and tenders coming up, but I'm
going to keep them spaced them out a bit. I also have a very
few really cool Western Maryland cars that turned up here in
Charlottesville, plus some from West Virginia.
I also have a
few interesting Southern MW cars coming your way. Since most
of what I saw were PS-1s, I will limit what I show to open
cars and a couple of really old boxcars.
In today's lot,
bunk car 911106 is another of the ex-Hocking Valley auto
cars. I think this one has been more recently resided and
has a much different window arrangement than the previous
tool cars. Also note that it appears the siding has been
replaced along the bottom, possibly from rust between the
siding and the side frame. I'm not certain where I found
this particular car, possibly at Scottsville on the James
940256 is unlike
any other C&O MW car I encountered. It appears to be
converted from a 50' auto car. Note the car-end man door,
and the Allied Full Cushion trucks, which are not original
if I'm right about the car's origin. This car was at Clifton
914057 was found in Charlottesville. I was fortunate to be
able to get two views of this machine.
