Nice to have a P.V. in the 'back yard'.

Looks like a heavy modified 10-6

My boss about 25 years ago lived in Hainesport, NJ. He comutted to Plymouth Meeting, PA at the time. He and 5 other co-founders of the company hit the jackpot when a major worldwide corporation bought their company (actually the company had become a subsidiary of another competitior's worldwide company). We minions got a few perks but eventually our very successful company was deemed to be just a minor part of their purchase and "didn't fit their marketing plan". They closed up our company despite our successes and excellent sales. They tried very unsuccessfully to move production to Korea. Death of a great product and manufacturing team. It was a bad moment in my life. It was my last downsizing/rightsizing layoff. It cost me $15k loss in yearly income in 2005 and it has never returned.
 The former boss could easily afford to purchase that railcar and maintain it. However he didn't really have any interest in railroads whatsoever. Well, he did know that Conrail wandered out his way on occassion to service the few remaining customers in Mount Holly.
The other former founders, founded yet another company and moved onward. I was not invited to that party but I beleive their success was somewhat limited.
Thanks chuchubob
