Ilwaco Railway & Navigation Co. Road # 212
30' Box Car w/Sliding Door
Part #MTL-800 00 210
New: Aug 2010

This 30’ box car with single door is painted brown with white lettering. It was built some time in the late 1800s and runs on Diamond Arch Bar trucks. The Ilwaco Railway and Navigation Company transported goods including cranberries and lumber, and passengers up and down the somewhat isolated Long Beach Peninsula from the bar of the Columbia River up the Long Beach Peninsula to Nahcotta, Washington, on Willapa Bay for over 40 years. Most passengers began their trip in Portland, Oregon taking the large paddleboats and, later, ferries across the Columbia river to the transfer point of the railroad. The railroad had a number of nicknames, including the “Clamshell Railroad.”
