Hi List Members,

I especially like the two views of the railroad car GE 25002, a trussrod center-hole flat car from series 25002-25007 - see links below:

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!
