The Pittsburgh and West Virginia Railway was centered in the Pittsburgh, PA and Wheeling, WV areas. In the early 1900's it was an extension of George J. Gould's Wabash Railroad but went into receivership in 1908. In 1931, the P&WV was at its height with the completion of an extension that connected it to the Western Maryland Railway at Connellsville, PA. It became an important part of the Alphabet Route, a coalition of smaller railroads (hence the name) that connected the Midwest to the Northeast. It served as a freight alternative to the big four major players: B&O, Erie, NYC and PRR. The "hard times" of the Depression put a real dent in the P&WV's expansion plans. It was finally leased by the N&W in 1964 when that road acquired other portions of the "Alphabet Route." By 1990 most of the former P&WV was then leased to a new spinoff, the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad. Long neglected in N scale, BLW is pleased to offer this limited edition set -- part of our 40' Boxcar Classics series.

The Central Railroad of New Jersey, simply called the Jersey Central Lines or CNJ by railfans dates all the wayback to the 1830's. Its main line ran from Jersey City west across New Jersey. It crossed the Delaware River to Easton and Scranton. There were also branches running into southern NJ. Dating back to 1883, the Reading Railroad had a strong influence over the CNJ which it continued to use as its NY City area "terminal". The CNJ ended in 1976 when it was officially "absorbed" into Conrail. Of historical interest, Liberty State Part in Jersey City includes much of what was once CNJ's Jersey City Terminal. BLW is pleased to be able to offer this limited edition Micro-Trains run exclusively.
Car is light boxcar red with black roof/ends and has two "paint-out" areas where data was changed during the life of the car. Another in our 40' Classic boxcar series.

Though small by national standards, the Maine Central was the largest railroad in the state of Maine. Although it was first chartered in 1856, its history goes back to the very first days of railroading in the state. Nicknamed "The Pine Tree Route", the railroad hauled large amounts of pulp wood from the surrounding forests and also helped to deliver paper products from the many mills in the state. Its primary connection was with the Boston & Maine at Portland and on the east it reached the US/Canadian border. It faced stiff competition from trucking and was sold to U.S. Filter Corporation in 1980 and then resold to Guilford Transportation Industries in 1981 (the same company which also purchased the Boston & Maine). We hope that this special run offering will help the Maine Central to live on ... thanks for the support. This is another in our "Classic Boxcar Series".

Lehigh and New England 40' Boxcar features black roof.
The Lehigh and New England Railroad (LNE reporting marks) connected northeastern Pennsylvania towards the Poughkeepsie Bridge across the Hudson River. The railroad faced decreasing revenues with the decline of mining operations in Pennsylvania. Parts of the road were taken over by the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the entire operation was later absorbed into Conrail. BLW is pleased to offer these classic boxcars exclusively in N scale.
