I periodically go in to the Pitt Digital library to see new stuff, or do research, and these showed up in the Pittsburgh City Photographer collection. Most of it is street work, paving and such, but some have freight cars peripheral to the subject.
That’s very true. I don’t know why they are uncommon. It’s not like there weren’t thousands wandering around out there.

I had not seen these images! Thank you for sharing. Are they on the Historic Pittsburgh site?
A Pennsy X26 is featured in one of those images and it looks like it is wearing the original lettering. I have seen very few in-service images of these cars in original lettering.
