Lackawanna “Boonton Line” Coach #3966
Built in 1915 as an open vestibule, open window commuter coach for the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad and operated on the "Boonton Line" out of Boonton, NJ. Converted by the DL&W into a training car in the 1930's. Retired by the DL&W and used as a yard office in Portland, PA until sold into private ownership. The car is in very original condition but is missing most of the walk over seats and a small office was built into one end. To convert back into a coach would pretty easy since from what we are told the window openings were just covered over and the sashes are still in place. Body & roof are in fair condition, original trucks, friction bearings, original DC electrical system. This is a very RARE car, you can have the look of a circa 1900s car without the issues of maintaining a wood carbody, the open vestibules are original to the cars construction and sister cars are current operating on several vary popular tourist railroads in the U.S.
