Subject: [STMFC] an old Rock Island flat car



I uploaded a photo I took of what I think is RI 92103, listed
as one of 3 43 foot flat cars in this series in 1955. I zoomed
in and also loaded a scan that shows the truck in more detail,
which I think is a USRA style Andrews truck. The scans are made
from a photo print so the quality is only so-so.

I took the pictures in July 1992 in Grafton Massachusetts, where
the Grafton & Upton short line connected to Conrail's ex-Boston
& Albany mainline between Boston and Worcester MA.
