Re: outstanding article on freight cars
Hi Mike,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There's photographic evidence of these Barrett cars being used on the Maryland & Pennsylvania RR. Consequently, there's been appreciation for your recent excellent article in the Ma & Pa community too.
One of the major industries on the line was Funkhouser's slate quarry in Delta, Pa., which produced all manner of slate products, but among them slate granules used in roofing. So you can include the small M&P in your list and, by extension, its interchange railroads B&O and PRR.
All the best,
