On September 11, 2016, on the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the attack on the New York World Trade Center, a dedicated and talented group of artists designed and applied a 9-11 Memorial Mural to the Museum’s BM-60 Baggage Mail Car #7737.

7737 9-11 paint 2016

Dedicated in memory to the people of America who were lost on that fateful day, with special recognition to the first responders who ran in to save those trapped inside, this car and its art has stood as a hallowed reminder for five years at Riverhead, New York.  It has become a beacon of reflection and thoughtful comfort for many Long Islanders.  People visit this car at all times of the day and night to remember.

On Saturday, September 11, 2021, the twentieth anniversary of the attack on America, another group of talented artists, organized by curator Patrick Voorhees, will create a new memorial wall.  This new work is planned to show the World we have not forgotten and to show respect and hope for the future, yet with 9-11-01 on our minds.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island believes the sensitive artwork of Meres One, Wore_IBM, Kenji.NYC and See_TF in 2016 should not ever be lost or forgotten.  To that end, we have developed this Lionel O Scale, fifteen inch long model of the car and its artwork at Riverhead, New York.  We offer it to you to “Never Forget.”  Please consider adding this very special tribute car to your railroad or collection.

PRR Steam,

I am gong to be honest with you, we did not notice the difference in roof outlines of the catalogue image and the artwork prototype!!  YIKES!!  Thank you.  I will reach out to my Lionel representative and confirm what roofline the model will have.  In the finished product the roof will be black and the artwork will appear on both sides of the car.

Don
