CONRAIL 243880

By: Jon Wright


Description

CONRAIL 243880 - Conrail 243880 class X67 86 foot long boxcar was built in 1970 for the transportation of automobile parts between assembly plants. It was donated by CSX to the Conrail Historical Society in 2020 and was moved by truck to Shippensburg, PA in late 2021 where it was then repainted in its original color. The interior of the car will be transformed into a 10,467 cubic foot climate-controlled Conrail Museum & Archive that will be accessible to families and researchers alike. The boxcar was placed in February, 2022 near the Cumberland Valley Railroad Museum (CVRM), which is housed in a restored Penn Central boxcar at the Shippensburg trailhead of the Cumberland Valley Rail-Trail. www.thecrhs.org/243880

Growing up along the B&O Old Main Line in Mt. Airy, MD. My Dad and I would watch the cold storage get switched out on Saturday mornings but it wasn't until after I moved to Martinsburg, WV and took my Son to the station to watch trains that I began filming and photographing CSX and Winchester & Western in 2008. Soon after that I caught the nocturnal bug and began pushing my equipment to its limits doing night photography via either long exposure, off camera flash or both. In 2018 I purchased a drone and have taken photography to new heights!
