Maryland & Pennsylvania RR 700 series Box Cars
The Ma & Pa built these cars in the late 1920s using parts from previous cars. These wooden truss rod cars served the railroad for many years with a few lasting into the early 60’s long after other railroads would have scraped them for more modern equipment. Cars #713 and #723 are now preserved at the Strasburg Railroad and car #727 is preserved by the Williams Grove Historical Steam Engine Association. Car #729 is the lone box car in Jim Gallagher’s famous November 10, 1955 photo of one of the Ma & Pa’s last steam powered freight trains.
