"Keith Erikson (owner) photo, from the Lackawanna Cutoff Historical Committee closed group:"

As I noted in my post above, the guy who owns the 318 is Lance Erickson, not Keith.

A little more searching around for information:

DL&W 323:
Wrecked in NJ by PC while being delivered to RRPC from LIRR, thus was never assigned a number by RRPC.

DL&W 314:
And now: The Chessie Steam Special/Safety Express Cars
Chessie Safety Special #18: Open air car, ex-PCCA 7200, conv. 1980 from ex-RRP 83-coach 8303, ex-Tumin coach, exx-MTA/LIRR 2184, rblt from EL 68-seat 1314, former DL&W 314 for Phoebe Snow, 1949 ACF, PCCA.


Not sure what the "Tumin" reference is ...

Anyone know where this one went? I know there are some references to it (314) being GSMR 37 “Nantahela”, but I see other sources saying it is ex-DL&W 311.

One could make the case that GSMR 37 “Nantahela” is really 314 when comparing photos of 37 to CSE #18.

CSE #18

GSMR 37


But then that means what happened to DL&W 311?

"Not sure what the "Tumin" reference is ..."

Louis Tumen Co., the outfit that scrapped many many LIRR cars at Tumen's yard in Corona, Queens, near Shea Stadium/World's Fair site.

Tumen also cut up most of the old PRR Pullman parlor cars used by LIRR, and replaced by the lightweight car fleet.
