NYS&W boxcar #526 is dropping off its last load at the Silk City Mills, before heading to the Interchange Track for its road trip.

Hey, Bruce...

I'm fuzzy on the sequence of NYS&W car schemes. I know they had that Susie-Q herald scheme, a boxcar brown/oxide red scheme (I have that one as a Kadee car) and the green and yellow as shown in your photo. Have any idea?

I decided to send the one on the left after all. I snipped off the brake lines and hoses that were near the trucks and ran it the length of our club layout (16 scale mikes) last night. I never thought to take any pictures like Bruce did.

Russ, up until the late 1940's the Susquehanna had a small fleet of 40' outside braced wood boxcars (Fowler type) that they got from the Erie. These were painted boxcar red, and were in the 1500 series. In the late '40's , they bought 35 PS-1 boxcars from Pullman Standard. These were originally painted boxcar red with black ends and numbered in the 400 series. All but two of these were sold off to the Monon in the 60's. In the mid 1960's, the NYS&W bought some used boxcars (oxide red) from the Lehigh Valley. Originally these were just restenciled into the 500 series. Shortly thereafter, some were painted green with the "Susie-Q" herald. Others were left oxide red. The Yellow/Black scheme is more of a mystery. The model I bought said "circa 1960", but I think that these were repaints in the mid-70's.

Bruce,

You should ask Ray at MRPO. That's where I first saw them in his Railrunner line of cars. Plus, isn't he active in the NYSW historical society? Cripes, maybe I will go there tonight. If I do, I'll ask!

Bruce & Chuck...

I have a model of one of the NYS&W's Fowler boxcars from Westerfield. I also remember know of the Great Equipment Sell-a-Thon where the new Budd passenger cars as well as the PS-1 cars were sold off. I believe the yellow and green paint scheme is a late fabrication same as the yellow and black RS1. Ya think?
