I went through some of my photos. I found two EL covered hoppers that I shot
down at the mills around 1979/80.

The BCK boxcars were ordered new in the early 1950's. I think they just
received minimal maintenance thru the years. By 1965 they were pretty beat
up. I never saw one receive a new paint job. They just went to rust and then
were sold or scrapped. The WNYRHS has a BCK boxcar in their collection plus
the BCK's only high-hood ALCO from 1940. Fortunately we have a lot of their
corporate records. I've been working on a history of the RR for the past ten
years. Its about half done.
