The White Diamond is on a rr in the fingerlakes region and is used and in fine condition.

I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

It appears to be old — just wondering if it is from Lehigh Valley RR.

According to White, this was a new design and more of a single-purpose coal car than previous designs.
White states that the origins of this type of car “are uncertain”, but that the design was “worked out by the road’s longtime master car builder, John S. Lentz.”
Perhaps someone thought the design was “borrowed”. Further research might find the court case, although railroad patent cases at that time were numerous(too bad the “Complainants” name isn’t given.)
In any event, it would appear that the model dates to around 1888. Hope this helps.

It looks as though the lettering may say “Complainants model of Defendants alleged “Lehigh Valley Car”. Maybe this was an exhibit in a patent-violation lawsuit? This would account for the amount of detail and professional look to the model.
