The 106 is in safe hands at the A&A. We have a couple of steam guys on the crew and once she's home, we'll have a better timeline for operation.

The boxcar is (I believe) a PRR X29. Not 100% sure of the model, but it's def a PRR box.

Thanks very much for the info on the "other" boxcar.

Just heard from Russ and the road number of the X29 boxcar at the Allendale & Auburn is PRR #38482. Thanks Russ!

Just found a 2011 photo of PRR #38482, when the X29 was at Strasburg, Pennsylvania:

Hopefully ALLN will eventually restore the Pennsy lettering.

You're welcome. Currently the repaint is low on the list, but at some point it'll happen. I'd bet money on it being Pennsy again, but can't say 100%
