Re: Burning Box Car

Wood floors; flaming journal boxes? :-D

I saw flames passing by under a box car once, in the late 1970's in Ann Arbor, on a
Penn (old Michigan) Central freight along the Huron River.

Of course, who knows what started this particular fire?

I've attached Edward Kindig's fire photo for your enjoyment.

What was the story behind this burning box car?


Does anyone have any photos of burning freight cars they can share?
