L&W Freight Carsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Central of Georgia Railway Historical Soc : One Thread
As part of my ongoing research on the Louisville & Wadley, I've been seeing mentions and pictures online of a variety of freight cars bearing the LW reporting marks, some of them new looking and some decidedly second hand. I know they had some cars during the Railbox craze of the '70's, but can anyone provide the current scoop? And might anyone be able to provide a copy of (or information on)the L&W page from a recent ORER?
Thanks, Steve Flanigan Los Angeles

LW box car 1090 was the tail end of a NB CSX freight crossing 3rd St SW this morning. Another LW box car was closer to the front, but I wasn't close enough to the tracks to read the number.

I don't have any info on these prototype cars, but thought that you might be interested that is now producing one of these cars in N scale. Go to http://www.internettrains.com/lbflouiswad6.htmlLBF to see it.
I have some research materials that I collected on the L&W a few years ago. Let me hear from you and perhaps we could share information.

Steve, May I make a safe bet that you are the only person in L.A. who probably has ever even heard of the L&W, much less is researching it?!?!? :-)
Can’t help with any “modern” (post-60s) L&W cars, but I have some photos of the pulpwood cars they bought second-hand from Atlantic Coast Line in the late 60s –
