95 year old freight cars… rotting in the sun. 

Must be a railroad museum.

Fillmore & Western in California. It is one of several preserved Western Pacific channel side DS box cars. All of the WP cars had steel end replacements; earlier ones were corrugated, later ones were inverted-reversed??? early Dreadnaught. Our own Garth Groff has a nice Sacramento Northern web site which has a page devoted to the WP cars sold to the SN, plus the same cars SN had new, which never had steel end replacements. 2 cars at Fillmore, one of each steel end variety, plus one at Niles Canyon and several which are scattered around the state in private hands.
