One other identification assistance request please.  On page 76 of the N&W
facilities in color book, Mr. McClure photographed 3 retired boxcars in the
yards around Crewe.  Can someone please help me positively identify the
class designation for these cars?  I am suspecting BS or BT, but I am not
entirely sure of the definitive spotting features, and would appreciate a

Sincere thanks,  (and it was great getting to see some of you at the
Strasburg gathering - I have some video footage of the mixed train that was
shot from a unique location.  I'm hoping to find a way to post it to share
with everyone)
