Re: Photo: SP Flat Car(s) Transformer(s)

Friends,

Note the "Not to be loaded off system lines" stencil. This sort of answers the earlier question about whether these cars were sent east to be loaded. Somebody mentioned possible transport by ship to San Diego. If these came by sea, San Pedro or Long Beach (Los Angeles Harbor) was far more likely.

Yours Aye,

Group,

Here is another photo from the Huntington Library collection showing the lone SP F-70-1 # 49679 flat with load more clearly.

Can't find class stencil that was normal practice on car though.
