I see some parked on dead end tracks and used as offices or stores, like in rochelle park and wychoff. But does nysw have any 6 axle passenger cars that are operable?

I was down there for some reason or other where I had time to stop and look and on one side is the station and on the other side is old boxcars (painted nice, used for storage or something). You can see maybe 6 feet of one side of it clearly from any vantage point. It's (it was?) easier to shoot the ex-Erie coach in Utica. (car was reported sold to LA&L, don't know if it's been moved at all, was in very rough shape).
(the car itself was named the "Black Diamond" and it was also used on the train called "The Black Diamond")
currently used as a business office by NYSW, Cooperstown NY
I dont know if it has 6-axle trucks now, but it did originally.
I have never seen a current picture of it in Cooperstown.
here is a pic of the coach from 1973, before it belonged to the NYSW:
