<<As to why it’s there on an team track?  Because a lot of freight was delivered to team tracks and carted, wagonned, drayed, or otherwise carried away to a location not directly served by rails.  Someone (perhaps on another list) suggested that the plant in the background (which somebody should be able to use to locate this picture) was perhaps a brewery or something else that might use grain.  I doubt that this carload was intended to go to that location, because that industry is certainly large enough to have had its own sidings.>>

 

Spotting the damaged car on the team track might have provided better access to the photographer asked to document the damage to the car.
