Does, anyone have any prototype photos. B&W, or especially color of CNJ BX 1 Express boxcar road #22481?
I have a scale model of same and I would like to have a photo., or photos., for my records.
I would pay for photo., shipping, handling, or postage.
Please, advise me and I'll provide my mailing address, etc.
There's a very good b&w photo of this car in Vol. 6 of the Railway Protoype Cyclopedia, on page 14. It appears as part of a comprehensive article on express boxcars. The original photo is credited to ACF Industries and may not be available to the general public.
The RP CYC is a series of publications with detailed prototype data, and back issues can be ordered from the website at rpcycpub.com. Volume 8 of this series has a flow-up article with photos and info on even more express boxcars.
By the way, in the photo car 22481 carries "CRP" reporting marks for CNJ subsidiary Central RR of Pennsylvania.
A search engine produced this picture.
I hope it is what you are looking for.

Thank you both, for your concern and info.
Yes Andy, I know this forum deals with HO, but I have an Atlas 'O' #A-8592-1, 1:48 scale size box and my model has the 'CRP' over the road number, to the left and to the right Lady Liberty has"Jersey Central Lines."
I went online to Railway Prototype Cyclopedia for a photo. of #22481, since the actual Volume 6 is out of publication and I am awaiting a reply.
I know, I'm a pain in the rear, but if possible, I like to have a prototype photo., of my models.
To the best of my understanding, this forum deals with prototype information, not any particular modeling scale. If you can't get the photo from the publisher, try looking for Volume 6 with used book dealers such as Railpub.com, and even Amazon.
Thank you again, Andy,
I will look into Railpub.com and Amazon.
Thank you for your suggestion. I contacted a book store and since "Railway Prototype Cyclopedia," Volume 6, is out of print, the proprietor was understanding and is mailing me a copy of the car's photo., free of charge.
