Providence & Worcester
Road Number PW 167
PER DIEM SERIES #4
This 50’ rib side box car with single door and no roofwalk is orange with white lettering and runs on
Barber Roller Bearing trucks. The Providence and Worcester Railroad was one of many roads that
participated in the Per Diem program during the 1980s. Leased from capitol investment companies who
provided new equipment to smaller regional firms, these cars gave the railroad the ability to compete
with larger railroads for local freight traffic throughout much of eastern Massachusetts.
