Re: Interesting Freight Car


Not lacking, most likely hidden by the cars in front. Note how tall it is compared to the CB&Q stock car it’s coupled to.

Subject: [STMFC] Interesting Freight Car

Here is a photo link from the Barriger Library:

Use the arrow pointing down at the lower right corner to see a larger version of the photo.

This undated photo was taken on the Missouri Pacific.

Notice the distinctive car in the middle of the photo. This appears to be a car that was in captive service and didn't leave the MP. The car lacks initials and a road number but does have a sign that begins to read "For Exclusive Use..."

I'm sure some of you already know all about this or similar cars so please share what you know.
