Built by Pfaudler General American, the exact build date is unknown. Although built in the style of a milk car, GM&O used this, and 18 others for Maintenace of Way service hauling water and oil. The car is in excellent structural shape, and still contains her tanks behind her skin. A repaint is all this piece needs to be in near new/as built condition.
General American Transportation Tank Car
Built in 1962 for General American Transportation, this tank car was used for transporting liquids all over the nation. The requirements for tank car safety have been changing consistently for the last thirty years, so many tank cars do not ever reach the end of their actual useful life. This car at one point was used as an oil tender for a steam locomotive owned by the museum. With the selling of that locomotive the car was placed into storage until display tracks can be built in Versailles.
MONON RAILROAD GONDOLA
This car was originally used for transporting limestone blocks from quarries in southern Indiana. It then spent some time in Maintenance of Way service for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, after it merged with the Monon. While it looks rough, much of the steel frame is in good shape, and is restorable.
Norfolk and Western Insulated Boxcar
While not quite like a Refrigerator Car, Insulated Boxcars minimize the temperature effects to their cargo. Goods which are to remain cool may survive an abnormally warm day, while goods which aren't to freeze may survive a cold snap. This car is in good shape, and will be brought to the Museum and used for displays.
Seaboard Coast Line Gondola
Initially a general service gondola, it was later used in Maintenance of Way service on Seaboard Railroad and CSX.
