This 40' standard box car with single door, full ladders and no roofwalk is brown with black ends and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Built in 1941 for New York Central's P&LE subsidiary, and later rebuilt into Baltimore & Ohio's B-6 car class, it served B&O into the 1970s before retirement. Baltimore & Ohio was the oldest common carrier railroad in the United States, founded in 1830. After numerous mergers, it became a part of CSX Transportation where its heritage lives on today.
