Chuck is right about Boston having a Union RR that ran at night.
It was part of the New Haven, and worked city streets making
set out & pick ups. Ergo, at night.
The car in question is the Union RR in the Pittsburgh area that
served the steel mill at Edgar Thompson Works.
The Union in Boston MA had no cars, just power and caboose
on the roster. Hope that clears it up for you.

If I recall correctly, the Union Railroad was "The Railroad That Ran
At Night" in Boston.
In a message dated 4/26/2011 10:43:28 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
I have not noticed any comments about the new model on the F&C website. It
is a Union RR gondola. It looks to be a nominal 50-foot car.
Was the URR one of the steel company owned RR's?
