   could say,,what freight cars ??
   but that wouldn't be correct,they had several series of Ore Cars with roofs
  for NJ ZINC service.
  and wooden pre WW-1 boxcars.
   some are shown in the Carstens L&HR book with Warwick shops pics.
  later they seemed to use LV and CNJ covered hoppers for NJ ZINC.

Spiker...Boxcars for the most part but hoppers and flats are good too. Didn't know there was a book on the L&HR. Thanks for that info.

Jason...That is one very sad gondola   :x

    Frank,
   Carstens had:
   Lehigh and Hudson River RR , the East End.   by Krause
   Lehigh and Hudson River RR , the West End.  and Crist
  Bob Penisi - Railroad Ave had , or may still have :
   Lehigh and Hudson River,a brief look before Conrail.
   Morning Sun had:
   Lehigh and Hudson River RR in Color.
   the Carstens books date to the early 80s.
  the Peninsi book about 74.
  not sure about the Morning Sun book ? 90s ?20s ?
   try some of the larger book sellers,or eastern hobby shops
  Rons has/had the Morning Sun book for a big premium,but
  others may have the Book still on the shelf,happy hunting.
  in my trips to Warwick after 1970 never saw any cars marked
  L&HR except Cabeese.

I was able to find L&HR East End on E-Bay for about $10 and snapped it up. Won't get it for about a week.

For those interested in the L&HR (must be at least one other out there) finally found some more info...There is actually a Lehigh & Hudson River forum at Railroad.net and although it only has two pages I found some goodies...

"The Official Railway Equipment Register for January 1945 shows the series 2101 to 2175, but there are only nine boxcars in the group. They are 36 foot inside length boxcars, not shown as "Steel" so probably wood or partially wood construction, and only 60,000 pounds capacity.

Two cars are left as of the July 1950 ORER. The January 1955 and January 1959 ORERs have no boxcars at all in the LHR listing."

There is also this site http://www.gingerb.com/lehigh_&_hudson_river_railway.htm

Unfortunately there are no pictures of L&HR boxcars unless you count this one...


I did find a ore hopper...


Some interesting stuff on EBay...

Oh well...At least I have the car numbers for my decals

 :o
   Frank be carefull with those R1ds,there were several runs,have heard the run
   brought in by AHM had some running problems and were sold off at a reduced
   price in the late 60s/early 70s,how about $67.77 ? or something close to that.
   the model is also closer to the B&M version,and was once told by a B&M Guru
   what the differences were,but have forgotten,as someone got the model that
   was in my sights,but was too slow to grab.
    it is really Too Bad they didn't save one to use with the Christmas Bobber caboose.
    You did get the book with Warwick in it !!!

   Frank,
   found a review last nite in Railfan,9/13 issue,pages 50-51.
   "the Maybrook Gateway",by Peter A Brill.
   this covers most roads that entered Maybrook,except NYC.
   this was the reason for L&HR's existence,and while not the
   sole focus of the book,should be covered fully.
    soft cover is shown at $39.99,available at Lulu.com,or thru
   the Anthracite Roads website.
    there is also a more expensive Hard Cover version.
     also came across the owners of L&HR -- PRR[PC],DL&W[EL],
   Reading,CNJ,LV.
     the Maybrook area was intresting,but sure fell on hard times
    after the PC merger.
          Spikre

" the Maybrook area was intresting,but sure fell on hard times
    after the PC merger."

I watched a PC train go over the Poughkeepsie bridge in 1970. train was much shorter than the bridge.
