From the looks of the freight cars in these images, it seems the Pennsy spit-shine crew wasn’t called into action on that G22 gondola. The NYC spit-shine crews sure kept busy on some great looking flats and gondolas.

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!
