Freight Roster

Compiled by Randy Hees.

NPC Circa 1880


All numbers even only
Numbers are an informed guess, with high confedence
Car Counts match numbers of cars reported in Poors & Railroad Comm. Reports

No's Builder Date No of cars Style
2-60 Carter 1875 30 24' 8 ton, mixed Vent & reg
62-86 Carter 1892 13 24' 15 ton, ventilator

Alan's roster shows this group survives intact to NS ownership, probably with original numbers, but most of the 8 ton cars do not make it to NWP.

Alan includes a boxcar 5. Its number sequence doesn't work, and it is way too heavy for a boxcar

Alan also includes 33 cars numbered 88 to 94, then unknown, and 18 cars used from SPC. SPC records show 50 cars sold to NS.


All numbers odd only.
