RF&P grain car heading west in original paint!
Author: CW44AC60

I forgot to let everyone know that there was an original paint RF&P grain car in the original road markings heading west towards clifton forge yesterday on a grain train lead by engine 213...for anyone who can trace this baby for the people in the midwest to catch it would be appreciated.
Thanks.

There are still a few of those floating around, of course I get to see them regualry as I am as likely to get a grain train as anything else. My personal favorite is the shorty Chessie grain hoppers many of which you might see yet.

I've had a fair amount of luck catching these in Rocky Mount, NC.

Re: RF&P grain cars - Only 11 left

The RF&P had 100 of these rib sided covered hoppers, numbered 9000-9099. As of today, there are now only 11 left with original reporting marks. Here is a list of the surviviing numbers you can use as a checklist...see if you can get shots of them all before they are all "tagged". The individual numbers are as follows:

RFP 9012
RFP 9015
RFP 9016
RFP 9024
RFP 9027
RFP 9029
RFP 9034
RFP 9037
RFP 9042
RFP 9048
RFP 9074

Good luck!

John
