Thought I'd revive this post after being absent for a couple of years. 

Everyone always added great pics.

Dad worked for the BR&P as a young guy so this B&P boxcar runs on the Plywood Empire Route:


Plus, as a kid I rode excursion trains on the B&O Buffalo branch which had been the BR&P.

What is the 'window' in the end of this car?  John in Lansing, ILL

Rattler21 - according to John White - The American Railroad Freight Car -  the end ventilator opening originated with combination cars which had both solid and barred main doors. The cars could be used for hauling either cattle or general merchandise.  The end ventilator doors were also useful for loading lumber and became a relatively common auxiliary on many standard boxcars.

How about some Kusan Boxcars.




Heh, I happen to have all the cars in the original post aside from the red KRR and Southern Pacific shown above.

Someday I'll put my Kusan mini-collection in one train and shoot video.

One thing about modeling the Pennsy is you need a lot of X-29 boxcars.  Here are a few of mine.

The Pennsy had over 29,000 of these.
