NC&StL Boxcar

This is believed to be the last remaining NC&StL boxcar in original paint.  L&N obtained the boxcar from the NC&StL in the 1957 merger, but never bothered to repaint, reletter or renumber.

Acquired in 2013 from Tennessee Central Railway Museum, we hope to have funding and volunteers for cosmetic restoration in 2015.
