"Wow, Its SO close!!"
On the morning of October 9th, 2021, Pedowitz Machinery Movers shoves Long Island Rail Road vintage boxcar "SHOP 100" past parked cars on Bay Avenue in Oyster Bay, NY as a resident looks on in awe. The boxcar was on it's way from Holban Yard in Queens, NY to its new home at the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum where it will sit on display for all to see.
SHOP 100 (NH 32006) is a former New Haven Railroad 40ft "PS-1" boxcar built by Pullman Standard in 1944. This freight car ran in revenue service around the country till the 1970s, when it was transfered to the LIRR as a surplus car. The LIRR used the car in work train service, then as a mobile parts storage unit. After sitting at Holban Yard in Queens, NY for many years the car was graciously donated to the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum. The museum plans to repaint the car into its original colors and use it as a storage unit while it sits on display.
