Kris Chessie System Boxcar
The Chessie System was a holding company that owned the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Railway, among others. There are no Chessie System cars listed in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. B. Batt owns another of the same car and believes it was never produced or marketed. Though it has the characteristics of a Kris car, it's unknown who decorated it. More information requested.
