TPW Boxcar

Unread post by jrgerber »

I could have put this in the history section. I can remember when railroads used boxcars as billboards to advertise their service.

Wow-- never saw a real car from that RR, would have remembered it. Back then, most of the RR's had really neat paint schemes, with many colors on the locos and cars. Now, there are no more cabooses,the locos have mostly bland looking paint jobs, and three of the crew are gone----and the RR's plead poverty at every turn. This is from a much more appealing time.
