Thanks for posting the El Paso yard photo. Brings back memories. I may have even worked #60 around that time. Looks like one of El Paso’s dust storms may have been going on.

On the right in this photo is a partial view of the "Jumbo Car" used to ice express reefers at the El Paso passenger depot:



This home-built car is seen in better detail on Page 326 of the PFE book.
