note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet service effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

INDEX to Boxcabs Pages:

note-rt.gif   The primary Boxcabs Index has been moved to a separate page,
together with links and credits.

Boxcab Help - A service for boxcab afficionados,
posting reasonable questions (at my sole discretion).

There are now more than seventy-five (75) BOXCAB pages;
see the full INDEX, now on a separate page.

[A new "bugaboo" has reared its ugly head - complexity of organization -
see COMPLEXITY on my main index page.]

  The Boxcabs Index Page,


DISASTER!

The snow load on the roof of the B&O museum caused fully one-half of the roof to collapse the night of 16-17 Feb 2003!

See the CNJ #1000 page for more!



PAGE INDEX:

This page is unindexed, except for a linked photo index; scroll away.


Refer to the preceding CNJ #1000 page for information on the surviving
ALCo-GE-INGERSOLL-RAND BOXCAB OIL-ELECTRIC (DIESEL) LOCOMOTIVES.

This page is a special image-intensive page added 02 Aug 2002, the first of three, just to present 120 detailed photos of the 1925 ALCo-GE-IR demonstrator unit #9681 cum 1925 Central Railroad of New Jersey Boxcab Oil-Electric Locomotive #1000, which, amazingly, survives today exactly as when her engine was last shut down ca. 1956.

[Each of these three pages has a fully-linked index, with captions, to the photos on all three pages.]

Because there are so many photos and they are so big, here is a linked index, with captions:

There is similar detailed photo coverage of the only remaining twin-engined (108-ton, 600HP) AGEIR boxcab, the Foley Bros. #110-1, out at the Portola Railroad Museum in Portola, California, 'way up over Donner Pass in the High Sierras, near Lake Tahoe, Nevada.  The Museum is operated by the Feather River Rail Society, a group primarily devoted to the Western Pacific RR.

I also did not want to cut down on the resolution or have pop-up ads, so these and the Foley Bros. #110-1 detail photos are costing me dearly in storage space and money!  You'd BETTER enjoy all this, which took me several days to scan and load!

note-rt.gif - my conventions for these photos are that the front of the loco is the "F" or "1" end and the rear is the "2" end, so the "right" side is the "A" side or right looking from "2" to "F"/"1" and the "left" side is the "B" side or left looking from "2" to "F"/"1"; I will relabel any incorrect captions; please let me know if you spot any errors.

Boxcab Conventions

However, bear in mind that the standard 60-ton models had some variations; AGEIR demo #9681-cum-CNJ #1000 had the engine at the front and the generator at the rear, moving the pot stacks forward of center:

This is the first "third" of some 120 photos; it continues on Photo page 1 with the second "third" (photos 214-224, 301-327, and 401-402)!  Whew!

It's interesting (and embarassing) to note that the brake wheel is at the back (see #108, above, and 19 Jul 2001 shots inside rear cab (following) and thus that the stacks are offset to the FRONT!  The newer diagram at the top of this page explains this a bit.   rev (26 Jul 2011)

I left in some pix that are basically near-duplicates and others of poor quality just in case some detail shows that matters to someone, somewhere.

By special permission of the Museum, I was allowed to take these detailed photographs of #1000 and its surrounds inside the Museum (on 09 Jun 99 and again on 19 Jul 01) for the benefit of those who care but can not get to the B&O Museum (or others around the country with surviving early boxcabs or model boxcabs).
