Re: Linde "Boxcar"

The LIFE photo of LAPX 131 is very interesting. This is a rare view of one of the early General American 9' 5" cars, LAXP 101-599 (271 left in October 1958). Nice view of the interior too. It is the only FCR Linde car I've ever seen without a herald or other branding, and I wonder if this was carefully airbrushed out by the magazine staff to avoid looking like a product endorsement. Anyone know of a builder's photo for this block of cars that might show the lack of the diamond herald?

Yours Aye,
