Re: Heavy duty flat on ERIE in 1953

And to be clear, my friend Ben and his dad were not photographing that flat car in the early 50s. He believes that picture of the two of them (his dad and the car) was taken in the early 80s. Remarkable to me is the similarity of the load in 1953 and in the early 80s.

A follow-up on this. I circulated the model photo to my friend Ben Dibble, who send me back a prototype photo of the same car and the same load! “Dad” is his father who was “standing next to the car for scale.” Ben’s an excellent D&H modeler.
The flat car itself may be from the D&H, which had direct connection to GE's Schenectady Works and also with the Erie at Binghamton.
