Crew Cars Whether starting life as troop cars during the dark days of World War Two, or as the short-lived Express mail cars from the 1960's, many continued to find a useful service on the railroad as MoW Crew cars in. Foreman's cars and bunk cars were often nothing more than converted obsolete 40' wood or steel boxes.

MoW crew car equipment between 1950-60's wore boxcar or oxide red on the body and yellow over the ends. Later years saw the over-all aluminum color scheme being adopted on these cars. (Special thanks to Brian Paul Ehni for providing many of the images shown here)
