I found a L&N gond built in 1960 still around in MOW service.
Prairie Maverick.

From the looks of the ampersand, it is original! That's an impressive catch! :D

Looks like one of the gang trains.  I don't know which one, but one of them uses an ex READING box car (with rusted lettering still showing through) as a 'tool' car.

If its this car: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ataindy/5225090921/ then they were both on the same gang train back in 2010.

I think it was the T4 gang. They were on the IL sub and are now in Chicago.
Here is the video when they were heading to Chicago. W034 was on the interchange track getting onto the CE&D sub. The L&N car is at the 1:20 mark in the video.  I thought that car looked familiar.  ;)  Great Catch!
