Re: Photo: Painting A Boxcar On The RIP Track

In Terry Metcalf's Union Pacific 1936-1951 book, there is a photo of a guy painting a freight car while standing on the ground, and he's wielding a similar extension nozzle.  .Presumably the color is slightly different.

I suspect this method of painting was fairly common for cars painted in the open air.  The airless sprayer was already a fairly established technology by the 1930s.
