149-00-110 – Horse Car – NYC # 8660
This 70’ heavyweight horse car was built by American Car and Foundry in 1928 and was painted Pullman green and ran on 6-wheel passenger trucks. These cars allowed railroads to capitalize on the growing racehorse business during the first half of the 20th Century. The interior had convertible gates to adjust to the size and value of the load and could carry as many as 24 horses safely. Later these cars were used to transport vehicles, theater, and circus props across the country.
