The New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway (NYSW) (a.k.a. Susie-Q or Susquehanna) is a Class II American freight railway operating over 500 miles of track in the northeastern states of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It was formed in 1881 from the merger of several smaller railroads. Passenger service in Northern New Jersey was offered until 1966. Always an anthracite hauler, the railroad was purchased by the Delaware Otsego Corporation in 1980, and became a regional player in the intermodal freight transport business. A pair of Open 45’ 100-Ton Hoppers for this modern Railroad, coal loads crafted by Hay Brothers.

The fourth and final, offering in the CSXT Open 100-Ton Hopper SERIES! These were the State-of-the Art coal hoppers when CSX Transportation became it's own entity in the 1980's. After inheriting many, many 100-Tonners from all their mergers, an aggressive purchasing program ensued to create a most formidable coaling fleet! With the advent of Revolving Dumping these cars, today, remain a staple for hauling super-large quantities of coal to electric plants and other coal-burning facilities. Honoring the three integral Rail Lines (WM, B&O, C&O) forming the CSXT conglomerate, the reporting marks of each was kept as part of the identification of the older cars. Here are the 100-Ton mega-coalers previously owned by the Baltimore and Ohio Railway! They are representative of the last 60 years for the coal industry!
When CSX Transportation (CSXT), one of our four primary National rail lines, finally gained it's own identity in 1987, an energetic purchasing and repainting program began. Big 100-Ton hoppers were added to a whopping fleet acquired from all the mergers. As tribute to three main Railroads of the consolidation, CSX kept the reporting marks of each as part of the identification of the inherited cars! (WM, C&O, B&O)
The Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) one of the oldest RRs in the USA, (1828-1987) served New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago, St. Louis, MO, and points in between. It's motto was "Linking 13 Great States with the Nation." Absorbing innumerable Lines during the 20th Century, in 1963 the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway took financial control of the B&O and it's interests in the Western Maryland Railway. The three railroads were brought together as the Chessie System in 1973, CSX Corporation in 1980, and CSX Transportation in 1986.

The Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) formed in 1869, tapped the coal reserves of West Virginia, established Newport News, VA with coal piers on the Atlantic, and forged a rail link to our Midwest, serving the USA States of IL, IN, KY, MI, NY, OH, PA, VA, WADC, WV, and WI. In 1964, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) jointly filed to acquire control of the Western Maryland Railway and became part of the Chessie System which, eventually in 1987, became part of CSX Transportation.

The Western Maryland Railway (WM) operated in Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and was primarily a coal hauling and freight railroad, with a small passenger train operation. The lumber trade was also important to the WM and it's fast freight service was appreciated by the clients. In 1964, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) jointly filed for permission to acquire control of the Western Maryland Railway and it became part of the Chessie System which, eventually in 1987, became part of CSX Transportation.

With the advent of Rotary Couplers and Revolving Dumping these cars, today, remain a staple for hauling super-large quantities of coal to electric plants and other coal-burning facilities.

CSX Transportation , one of our four primary National rail lines, serves 23 States in the Eastern USA and the Canadian Provinces of Ontario and Quebec with over 70 ocean, river and lake port terminals along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, the Mississippi R., the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway. It's slogan is "How Tomorrow Moves," and it's name comes from the merger of the "C" Chessie and "S" Seaboard Rail Systems, with the "X" connoting "Consolidated." Both Chessie and Seaboard Systems had been comprised of mergers and acquisitions of all the major eastern USA rail lines, too numerous to mention! Not until 1987 did CSX have it's own identity and purchasing and painting of equipment could begin. In 1998, permission was granted to split-up the assets of CONRAIL (a government-owned corporation formed from the ailing NYC and PRR railroads) between CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads.

In the course of coal unloading procedures at modern facilities, the revolving dumper was ideated. This was a piece of track enveloped by a huge turning mechanism which surrounded and locked the coal car in place, thus allowing the mechanism to rotate on an axis and dump the load from the topside, instead of the traditional gravity dumping via the hopper doors at the bottom. The use of a spinning rotary coupler in it's yoke, engaged the car within the mechanism allowing this method of quick and expedited dumping. Usually, the forward end panels of the hopper were painted a contrasting color to denote placement of the peculiar coupler. The use of this method has led to the end of the traditional hopper, and top gons, bathtubs and coal porters are taking it's place. Eventually, new technology using rotary couplers at each end of the car, allowed dumping without uncoupling from the consist, further saving time in the dumping routine!
The Burlington Northern Railroad was formed in 1970 from the merger of four large railroads, the Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Spokane, Portland and Seattle, and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. It serviced the Central US, most of the Midwestern States, and the Pacific Northwest. Merging with the ATSF in 1996 it became BNSF, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, one of the four major railroads in the USA!
