CNJ Wooden Boxcar


Years ago, Jersey Central Chapter members discovered this steel frame wood box car in a back yard in Metuchen.

Volunteers emptied it, donated it to URHS, and it was moved to the Morristown & Erie Ry.  It was later stripped of rotten wood and moved by road to Bivalve for the Bayshore Project (Home Port of the 1927 wooden Oyster Schooner A. J. MEERWALD).  They totally rebuilt it and it now contains high quality rest rooms for their visitors.
