This photo from the same collection shows a several large
stacks of returned cases under a tarp as a CB&Q switcher
sets cars to be loaded. 9203 was the Q's first NW2. It has a
large herald under the cab and cab numbering that was
different from standard Q switcher scheme at the time.
Freight car content: The first car behind is the switcher
is B&O 479097
(Class M-55ha/M-55hb?) that is only year or so old. The next
car is a SSW Wood Sheathed Boxcar whose number I can not
identify. The third is an outside braced car that is a
CB&Q car that might be a Class XA-7 built by Pullman in
1922 or Class XA-8 built by Pullman in 1925 that had both 6'
and 4' sliding doors. Obviously no longer in auto service
and was then in general service.

The Falstaff beer being loaded is beer in returnable
bottles. The cardboard case had easily opened and closed
top flaps. The case and the bottles were paid a deposit and
were refunded on return to the dealer. The bottles were
cleaned and refilled at the brewery. During the whole round
trip the cases were handled individually as the men were
shown doing in the photo.
