    Wayne, the yellow road numbers on the cab, and the little (hard to see in this pic) CSXT under the number say that this was an ex Conrail unit. Also, Conrail's SD50s were numbered in the 6700's, IIRC.

    Thanks. :-D I saw the "off-colour" :p numbers, but just attributed that to dirt, and couldn't see the CSXT sub-script. The fact that the diesel model was an SD50 escaped me, too, as did the altered number series. What grabbed my eye was "CONRAIL". To me, the model would have been important only if the word CONRAIL were on the tee-shirt she was wearing. ;):-D:-D

    A giant NYC box car probably for automobile parts or large appliances. It was a gift I was happy to receive but it does pose some clearance issues with hidden curved track in my tunnels. Fortunately I can run it as a quick one car load emergency shipment to the interchange track on its way to the Ford plant off layout. :)

    Here's a more modern auto-box. CN Car-Go-Rail 57' box 720028. These ran on the SuperContinental between Toronto and Edmonton in the '60s. By the 1970's a bunch of these cars were sold to the AutoTrain.

    Charlie, Proto2000 makes a 50' steel automobile boxcar with end doors, and Walthers used to make a 50' single sheathed wood car with end doors, as did Model Die Casting - in all three cases, the same car could be had with plain ends, too, so you have to know which are which. I've just recently picked up two of the MDC cars, although the roadnames I chose had plain ends - the LHS has a few with end doors, I think, and, as it's older stock, only $7.98 Cdn. The Walthers cars are out of production, but you can still find them - they come with separate ends, so you can choose end door or not - I saved the extra ends (picked up 8 or 9 undecs at my LHS) and then asked Walthers about buying doors separately for these cars (they're a fairly tall car) so that I could scratchbuilt some cars using the doors and ends. Their reply was that the cars were not likely to be made again, and that no doors were available.
    To get back "on track", here are pictures of the cars:

    And, in reply to Squidbait's earlier offering, here's a model (Bachmann) of the same car in its original paint scheme:
