Re: NJI&I to Wabash at Pine

Gary, I added a column noting what I’d >>speculate<< would be the final roads handling these cars.  I don’t really KNOW these are correct, but knowing something about what railroads served the destinations, I think these are fairly good guesses.


The Weehawken and the lighterage destination could be ERIE, but I am not at all sure about that . . . and my predilections may influence that guess.


I can’t speculate on the Detroit car, except isn’t that on the WAB?

Subject: [RealSTMFC] NJI&I to Wabash at Pine


I was recently able to acquire 4 pages of "Daily Interchange Report of Cars" from the NJI&I to the Wabash at Pine, Indiana.  For those unfamiliar with the NJI&I, it was a Wabash subsidiary which ran about 11 miles from South Bend to Pine.  The following list is dated 06May53.  It is cars which were left between 11P and midnight for pick up by Eastbound Wabash Train #96.  Employee timetable shows #96 due at Pine around 3A; but a note on the report shows it due at Pine around 9A on 07May.  All cars originated at South Bend.  I am showing Initials, Number, Destination, Contents.


Looks like Studebaker was going strong in 1953!


Hope the formatting comes thru intact.

* Looks like "NY Ltge Sta NJ"

-- Empty

** But as an empty, NJI&I was more likely just getting this car off their railroad and onto the WAB to avoid per diem charges.
