When I visited the park in 2004, I too noticed the DL&W trucks.
When I asked the park empolyees about the heritage of the car, they gave me the department to contact about its aquisition (I can't now find the notes about whom I spoke with.). I was assured it really was a Jersey Central car. I guess thats what I get for asking park people instead of railroad people.

The photo is from July 2004.

The caboose photo was also taken then. It is ex-EL by way of the D&H. Since it lacks ladders and a roof walk, it would seem to come from the C371 to C380 group.
