The Conrail Cyclopedia - Serving Conrail fans world-wide since 1998.

This car has been sitting in the NYS&W Uttica Shops yard with the rest of the NYS&W junk cars, ballast cars, and passenger cars. The yellow door means the car was assigned to 'clean lading service,' which meant it could be used in service where the car had to be clean inside. This often involed but was not restricted to paper service. Other classes that qualified for clean lading were the X74, X75, and BA50A (Raritan River boxcars).
