New Haven 3040 Storage Mail/Railway Express

A sister car to the 3008. In 1985 this car received the 1948 New Haven paint scheme, and has become a storage car for the RMNE. Donated by Michael Schiavone and Sons, Inc. to the RMNE in 1976. During the restoration of the 3040 in 1985, evidence that this car had gone through many renumberings became apparent. At one time or another this car was also numbered the 3659, 3661, and 3669.
