CSX Rail Car

Traffic through downtown Shippensburg was delayed Sunday, Aug. 22, as a CSX rail car was hauled near its new home at the Cumberland Valley Rail-Trail along Fort Street. The car will be transformed into a Conrail museum to further preserve the area’s rich railroad history. The rail car was hauled by the skilled staff of Dave’s Truck & Repair, with assistance from local fire police. It will be moved to its permanent location once the weather is dry enough. The 86-foot-long Conrail boxcar was graciously donated to The Conrail Historical Society by CSX Transportation.
