Re: FW: strange freight car photo
The image is dated as 1905 on the description page.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The end of this car reminds me of a fast freight line car from the 1880s.
The NYC painted cars a straw shade for one of their fast freight lines.
The image description also notes a relocated line for a 50-inch pipe but I
can't determine where this would be. I wonder if the far right railroad
tracks (the one with only one rail) is being removed to make way for this
relocated pipe line.
Tis a good mystery.
