SPECIAL MOVE - NH BOXCAR TO OBRM

"Freight Train Through Mill Neck?" - "SHOP 100" (NH #32006) is former New Haven Railroad 40ft "PS-1" boxcar built by Pullman Standard in 1944. This freight car ran in revenue service untill the 1970's, when transferred to the LIRR as a surplus car. The LIRR utilized the car in work train service, later as a mobile parts storage unit. After storage in Holban Yard, for many years, the car was graciously donated to the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum. The museum plans to repaint the car into its original colors and use it as a storage unit while it sits in their display yard. Info: Gregory Grice
