Re: this nice shot of the GM&O freight house

Jim Betz

  This structure has track on both sides - so I think it is a "transfer house".
  The picture was taken in 1960 - thus the doors of the house are further
apart to accomodate longer cars (50) combined with shorter ones (40).
  Most of the freight moving across this house would have been moved
using fork lifts (1960).
