Conrail Cabins & Cabooses
Miscellaneous Information
These three cars stored in Stewartstown, PA were spared the torch but the elements are taking their toll. I don't know the status or owners, but some day I hope soon they will be restored. 3 cabins
They are CR N-8 23298 (end damage, one truck knocked off the pin), CR N-5B 20043 (general deterioration and some vandalism) and L&HR 17, a wooden car (this is one of the cars rebuilt with plywood sides, just plain rotting away).
