Bob, all;

 

I just love this stuff. 

 

So, originated on the NYC at GE’s Schenectady, NY plant, bound for Long Beach, CA to populate their new steam plant for local power supply?

 

What a GREAT assortment of NYC’s unique flat car fleet.  And that GE well!  A smorgasbord of regular, well, semi-well, and HD flats, supplemented by a PRR G22, and RDG gon.

 

Thanks, Bob, SO much for sharing!
