The Conrail Historical Society has acquired an 86’ auto parts boxcar from CSX and will be turning it into a Conrail Museum & Archive in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania! The Society has received a $100,000 grant towards the project, which we expect to complete by mid-2021. For more information, read our press release at https://www.thecrhs.org/s/CRHS_News_Boxcar.pdf or check out our website at https://www.thecrhs.org/museum.

That sounds pretty cool, and worth a drive from Upstate NY to visit once it is finished! Good luck
