CPR Boxcar 173884

CP 173884 celebrates her 100th anniversary in 2012!

CPR 36' single sheathed boxcar # 173884 (later assigned work service # 404177) was built in October 1912. It is an excellent example of the "Dominion", or "Fowler Patent" boxcar design which replaced all- wood cars, being surpassed in size by other steel framed wooden cars in the 1920s.

This car retains its original Youngstown pressed steel doors, Westinghouse type K air brakes, and vertical handbrake staff.
