The Passenger Car It was built in 1902 in the West Philadelphia shops of the Pennsylvania Railroad. There were 600 built that year and this is their last remaining one. After service with the PRR it was sold to The Canadian National Railroad. The Henry Ford Museum in Detroit gave it to our museum, and we are working on its restoration.

It worked in Syracuse, New York until 1950, then for a short time elsewhere before it was retired and just rusted away. The Museum obtained it in 2002 and has restored it to look like an engine of the 1890’s. It is a great example of an old steam engine, although this particular one never actually ran on the Pennsylvania Railroad.

It is wooden and typical of the kind that was used on our freight line to Newtown Square. This car was given to us by the National Park Service’s Railroad Museum called “Steamtown” located in Scranton, PA. Click Here to read about the 1907 box car at the Newtown Square Railroad Museum. The Caboose The Pennsylvania Railroad built this car in 1950. We obtained it from a local group in New Brunswick, New Jersey and have been restoring it. Today cabooses are no longer used on freight trains due to advancing modern technology. Click Here to read about the 1950 PRR N-8 Class Caboose at the Newtown Square Railroad Museum.
