The Boston & Albany cars in the third set appear to be carrying transformers most likely originating at GE’s Pittsfield, MA plant

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!
