Re: Can you ID this 1957 TOFC?
I would strongly suggest that it is a DL&W trailer -- the style and letteing scheme fits (angled Route of Phoebe Snow lettering, similar to the boxcars), as does the silver roof. That flat car is not from the DL&W, however, and Tim's suggestion of a C&NW TOFC flat is a good one.

I think the DL&W had dark green trailers with aluminum roofs that looked
more or less like the one in that photo. The trailer appears to be an Aerovan,
with its distinctive rounded nose and roof trim. Whether the DL&W owned any
of those, I don't know.
But a DL&W TOFC flat car would be black, so my guess is the flat belongs to
the C&NW which had fishbelly TOFC flats that would run on the UP in this time
Does anyone recognize the trailer/flat combination (owner, roadname, dimensions, etc).
