Re: GN Spokane Hillyard Yard Photo

Bear in mind that 1946 was not a good year to be a freight car. They had been used very heavily during the war, plus many were old anyway as replacements slowed during the 1930s. Pretty much all the cars shown look dirty. A photo taken a decade later would show near-new brightly colored GN boxes with large logos, a very different scene, with only a few of these older cars hanging on.
