Ralston Steel Car Co. photos

A couple weeks ago during a discussion of collapsible hand brakes, Tim O'Connor posted a photo of the end sill of an Idaho Washington & Northern flatcar with a swing down hand brake, and I opined it must be a dedicated logging flat. Today I ran into a photo of the all steel version. Note the hand brake and fold down stakes.

This Is from a collection of Ralston Steel Car Co. builders photos available here:
