The era of the 40 foot boxcar wasn't quite dead on April 1st, 1976, and the new Conrail used many of them in those first few years. The writing was on the wall for these steam era freight cars though, and by 1980 most were off the roster or in MofW service. This Erie Lackawanna car was in pretty good shape this March 1977 day, and it's "XF" lettering is a clue it had interior lining for food service. Many of these EL cars were used to haul bagged flour out of Buffalo. Few if any 40 footers received a full Conrail paint job.
