Re: Tank heads on depressed center flat on EJE

I have to go from memory here, but I think this is the PRR’s 3F-F1 “Kiesel” truck found on the first group of F29.
The later group had Buckeyes, for sure.

The linked photo sure does look like an F29. The sill steps, grab irons, poling pockets, and polling pocket rivets all match up.
About the only difference between the attached photo and the linked photo is the cut lever. Carmer on the attached photo and bottom operated on the linked photo.
Does this flat car look like the PRR F29, also attached? (Granted, different trucks; the second order of F29 got Commonwealths).
Do those sheets look like tank or boiler heads? Interesting loading technique!
