Wow! That’s a great photo from the 1920s, Bob! Based upon the Pennsylvania Lines USRA single-sheathed boxcar, I’d estimate this is before 1927. After Lines West was folded into the main Pennsylvania RR corporate structure in 1924, they quickly painted out refences to Lines. Finding an in-service image of a PL USRA boxcar is rare.

 

Love all the other freight cars here, too!

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

This photo shows a great assortment of freight cars.
