Remarks & Notes 
Anyone who spent much time trackside in the northeast United States between the mid 1950s and mid 1970s undoubtedly saw a boxcar from the Buffalo Creek Railroad, with the roads distinctive flour bag logo prominently displayed. A 1964 Railway Equipment Register shows that the 6 mile line, which mostly served grain elevators on the Buffalo waterfront, had over 1700 40-foot boxcars which, coupled together, would stretch over twice the length of the railroad. The BCK was jointly owned by the Erie/Erie-Lackawanna and the Lehigh Valley, making it one of the lesser-known railroads to be folded into Conrail on April 1, 1976. Here one of those 40 foot cars may be at the end of the road, pushed into a siding in Binghamton, New York and missing draft gear.
