Earlier today a narrow (33.5 inch) gauge side dump car was moved to the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians in Phillipsburg, NJ. The car was retrieved and donated by the Dally Slate Company of Pen Argyl, PA. A predecessor firm, the Stephens Jackson Slate Company, once used the car to move sand to its structural slate and blackboard mill. The car was built by Easton Car & Construction Co. of Easton, PA, across the Delaware River from the car’s new home in Phillipsburg, NJ.

Videos of the move are online at:
