Preserved(?) STMFC in Texas Panhandle


Steve Sandifer <jssand@...>
 

I was a driver in a caravan of 8 vans taking kids to camp this week. As a diversion from the noise of the kids, I kept track of steam era rail cars and other noticeable things located along the way, most in farmer's fields. Of course I was unable to stop and investigate or photograph any of this, but maybe it will be of interest to some of you.
