Will next month's new releases include a pullman car named Almond Joy?

Would the PRR boxcar tip the balance?

Ahahahah.

But seriously, that, the Reading car, the CP box cars and those Conrail tie gons are all winners.

Actually... can one of my Canadian friends tell me more about those CP grain boxes? Were they limited interchange or could they show up anywhere?

Anywhere - as in the vicinity of York PA?

It would seem that these cars were used within Canada from 1980 until about the mid-1990s to service grain elevators situated on rural branch lines with rail too light to handle covered hoppers.

Would that Southern sleeper ever find its way to Chicago?

I don’t need any but the SP tank cars are very tempting. I need those is Santa Fe or the Q.

Well, yeah, but lately my area of interest has spread quite a bit, but generally is still contained in the mid-atlantic.

I figured that was the service those cars were in, but I guess my deeper question is "from there where?". Did they usually just work in shuttle service from small outlying shippers to centralized terminals or were they frequently from those same shippers to end customers?
