Re: Image of P&LE shops with view of 52'6" gons with floors removed

Thanks for sharing John.  Wonderful photos!  The whole series of photos you shared are real gems for a P&LE fan.  Those shots of McKees Rocks yard from that era are very unique.  They were taken soon after John Barringer assumed the presidency of the P&LE in 1956.  The presence of the new looking DSI built 70 ton 14 panel ribside hopper shown in one of the photos would indicate sometime around 1957 -58.  Someone who has knowledge of that shop fire, which many of the photos show the aftermath, would be able to place a more exact date.
