Re: Paint color for inside model stock cars
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Don finally home. To follow up the stockcar with the funny looking racks inside is a Pennsylvania K7a stockcar #134299. My memory was faulty, as soon as I looked at the photos again, I realized it was not used for poultry. Instead the racks are for plant flats, specifically tomato plants according to http://prr.railfan.net/freight/freightphotos.html?photo=http://www.prrths.com/PRR_Images/tomcar.jpg&fr=clK7
Unfortunately the photo link at the above site is not working. Attached is the photo showing the car with the racks. Hopefully a Pennsy fan can help out.

OK, Doug, I'll bite. What is depicted in the first photo with a CNR or CPR style stock car having rack floors in it? No hoofed animal could have been carried in such a car so I presume it was a method to
ship fowl when poultry cars were not available.
Cordially, Don Valentine
