Boston & Maine Railroad Box Car

Potter Place, NH

On June 12, 2009, B&M freight car 77704 arrived at the museum having been hauled overland from a siding in Canterbury, NH. The freight car is one of an original order of 1000 cars placed by the Boston & Main RR in 1956 and numbered 77000-77999. The number was changed in 1979 to 4503 to better reflect specific assignments for the car. In 2012 the badly rusted car was totally refurbished and now sits proudly next to the freight shed and is used for museum storage.
