This box car was built by Pullman-Standard Company in the 1950's as one of the 70000-series cars. It carried goods all over New England on the Boston and Maine Railroad. In the 1980's it was sold by the railroad to the Agway store that was in Shelburne Falls. It was donated to us when we bought the yard from Norm Sessions.
In 1994 it was painted as a mural for a teen art project, with aliens and spaceships and dinosaurs.
By 2013 most of the paint had peeled off
and you could see the B&M logo coming through the art work.
In 2013 it was painted with polka-dots by Caleb Neelon.
