Schuyler,

 

I played around with the image in Photoshop but was unable to determine a car number. The first letter in the reporting marks seems to be a G, so it might be a GARX car.

Erie (or anyone) can you read a car number on that image?

I don’t have any data on the evolving Hershey house car fleet. I did see this 1935 image recently that features a starkly different looking Hershey car in a Pittsburgh team yard.

This is a partial view of the car and it is reversed.

What is known about the Hershey fleet up to this date?

Thanks.
