I'd like to announce that some new N&W boxcar are available and ready to
ship. See the small blurb about the cars, below.

In 1965 Fruit Growers Express at their Alexandria, VA plant started to
build a custom car design for the Procter and Gamble Company (P&G) of
Cincinnati, OH. P&G specifically required a 12-foot wide door opening and
FGE re-designed their popular insulated boxcar design to the customers
requests. FGE purchased their underframes already pre-assembled by
fabricators Berwick in PA they were shipped to the Alexandria plant to be
rivet assembled. The entire boxcar was riveted together from the bottom up,
this included the unique 7+7 ADR (alternate double rivet pattern). These
CADILLACs of the FGE fleet were insulated (foamed-in-place), had a proven
20-inch cushioned underframe (Keystone and Freight-Saver), all had Evans
DFB Bulkhead loaders and Evans Side-wall Fillers as per customer
specifications for palletized loads. Very late in their careers once off
P&G service they have been used for other assignments like beer loading at
Coors, Golden, CO, amongst others.
*Below is a list of P&G plants, which also had warehouse space to
distribute all product lines;*
Aurora NE, Fremont NE, Henderson NC, Leipsic OH, Russellville AR, Augusta
GA, Avenal NJ, Greensboro NC, Lima OH, Albany GA, Alexandria LA, Andover
MA, Auburn ME, Boston MA, Cape Girardeau MO, Cincinnati OH-Ivorydale (NYC,
B&O) (St. Bernard on the N&W) HQ, Dover DE, Green Bay WI, Iowa City IA,
Kansas City KS, Mehoopany PA, North Chicago IL, Oxnard CA, Sacramento CA
(Polk CA according to NP), St. Louis, Baltimore MD (Locust Point), Omaha NE.

Attached are 2 examples of the cars. One is a black sill version, which is
a hold over from the Builder's Photo. Unlike other railroads, the N&W
elected to leave the Builder's Photo cars to remain in this scheme.

Best regards,
