Mystery slug

What is that?

I acquired this slide photo the other day and just got around to scanning it. Perhaps somebody out there can help identify the trailing unit/thing that is attached to the NW2 #419. It appears to be numbered 1122. I am totally guessing, but this appears to be the New Jersey Turnpike crossing Croxton Yard? 


  1. Riley - Yes, that is the NJTpk over Croxton. I believe the Erie used it on the hump. IIRC, that slug was built on the frame of the orignal W.28th St. boxcab! (the trucks give it away)

  2. My poor, beloved boxcab! Thanks for the info, Ralph - this will go in the scratch building project queue...
