CV Boxcar

CV 4396 on May 28, 2015 Palmer, Ma.

One had a peek at this car on Wednesday. It is surprising to see an old wooden boxcar still being currently used. At Palmer, Ma. one can find a CV outside braced boxcar used as the NECR mechanical office. I had seen it many times but thought it might be best to take some photos of it while still around...George Dutka  

The sign notes NECR Mechanical Palmer on May 28, 2015. One can see the Progress Rail smaller sign.

 On Oct 14, 2017 the NECR logo is still there and the smaller Progress Rail sign.The nice looking Mechanical Palmer sign is gone.

  1. Were other ex CV single sheathed boxcars painted MOW green? Now that Walthers has released very basic but reasonably priced ex Grand Trunk GP9s in blue, some of which mmade it back to CV in the 1980s, it's a reason to have last-gasp equipment on a CV layout.

    1. Hi John yes there was other MOW green boxcars on the CV...will have to dig for photos...George

  2. That structure was MADE for a train layout...
