This forum is for pictures or general discussion about D&H rolling stock, that may be still around or scrapped.
I recently found a D&H snow flanger on the Steamtown website and I'll put the link here.

not sure the specs on that car, it's at the RRM of PA. Maybe they have info about it on their website.

There is also a D&H Boxcar at Steamtown. It's a 40' Steel boxcar which used to be part of the freight consist. It now needs a new brake system and hasn't been used in years.

Took some better pictures of the D&H boxcar at the RRMPA, and a picture of the placard describing its history. It is a shame that this is the only piece of D&H history at that Museum, they are under-represented. I wouldn't mind seeing a lightning strip alco there with a nice little display consist, and a wide-vision caboose to cap it off.

Thank you for the pics leol. I believe those are archbar trucks on the boxcar and I did see the boxcar this past summer and was disappointed about the lack of historical info on this boxcar.

D&H gon hauling wood. Since th D&H didn't have much heavy industry, I wonder what they had in mind when these were purchased?

I'm guessing the gons were used to haul stone, perhaps for MOW or perhaps as revenue freight to be interchnaged with other RRs.

Gons were used to haul scrap metal to the mills in Pennsylvania. This was a lucrative southbound revenue source for the D & H until the end.  
 
If you watch the DVD's made in the 70's by Dave Deyo almost every southbound train has scrap filled gons.  
 
The D & H had a sizeable fleet of gons for this purpose.

Thanks Geoff. I assume the scrap was destined for Bethlehem steel?

My favorite D&H boxcars:
 

 
 
Saw them a lot in the mid 1980's..
I had a few models in HO scale back then too!
(I plan to eventually paint one in G-gauge)
 
I last saw one in 1992, photographed it in Binghamton.
 
there was a thread about them on another forum a few years ago..
the general concensus was that many still exist, although repainted.
I dont think anyone could come up with an existing example still wearing the "I love NY" scheme.

Thanks for jogging my memory- it's been about 22-23 years since I last saw the "I <3 NY" boxcars!
