Kris Shenandoah Valley Railroad Boxcars

The Shenandoah Valley Railroad is a shortline that operates approximately 20 miles of track between Staunton and Pleasant Valley, Virginia. There is only one Shenandoah Valley Railroad variation in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. The first boxcar on this page was produced by Kris Model Trains for Newbraugh Brothers Toys (NBT). The last two cars on this page were decorated by Palmo Silk Screening for NBT. Note that the railroad names on all three boxcars are different. Production dates and numbers are from the Newbraugh Brothers Toys Checklist 1974 - 1982.
