Re: PE and CGW cars


*And*, on p 69 there's a picture of CGW 91083, in Frederick, Md., on
6 Oct '46. So cars from both CGW and PE made it out East.

To summarize several comments from this thread and others, the point
is that boxcars in general service wandered all over. If you're
modeling an Eastern line, one probably didn't see a *lot* of cars
from smaller roads far away, but were there *some*? Sure. If you
have a PE car and a CGW car, of the right era, it's almost certainly
close-enough-to-prototypic to run them; but unless your fleet is
*huge*, I don't think I'd go on to add a Northwestern Pacific car, a
Mississippi Central car, a KO&G car, and a Hannibal Connecting car.
Unless there's specific documentation that they visited your line,
of course.

Hello to you all
I'm the new boy on the block and I'd like to ask the following
Would Pacific Electric and Chicago Great Western cars(of any sort)
seen in New Jersey or Pennsylvania ?
Would they make that sort of a long journey from their home road?
